Day 6 : 27th April : Icht - Gué Vatanen

Dawn
already very hot



Let's go!
Heavy dust going though the air







Finding a few friends along the stage, Isabela, Jaime and Andre
Looks like the BMW is not willing to work correctly
On of the cylinders is refusing to fire
Go on one cylinder only for another 20kms till refuel
Ooops, 2nc cylinder gone too
Another friend redecorating his 650X bodywork, morocan style scratches



Wait for the pick up truck
Let's continue, he's got water, shade and lots of patience
Lunch in Tata
Kefta, like if we never had kefta before in morocco
The last four wheeler is here
Get out of here, we are already late (noone can go behind the last jeep, it's like a security that ends the caravan, usually is way behind, but this time we were just taking too much time to lunch!!)
More great tracks



Draw!



Checkpoint in the creek







Another bite at a small eating place
Final sprint



Arrive at Gué Vatanen
small river crossing
Ups, a bit of sand



where are they really??
there, in the water
Water!



"be carefull that thing is deep"
water in knee level...



Some photos
they were watching us



Fresh beer in the middle of nowhere
Looks like there is JB scotch too, and another one that i can't remember it's name.
Prepare dinner
typical portguese food, codfish with grain... this does not sound right, but i can't find another word... it's a vegetable!



Wait... wait! we have fireworks!



Did anyone noticed there's a truck full of fuel there too!?



Happy birthday...



Sleep!
