Propane gas, they say, is easier to find in Africa than butane.  Not in these parts it seems.

Well folks, a lot of hanging about but it seems our Libya visas are ready and we look forward to crossing the border tomorrow am.  Dont know the name of the guide whos supposed to help us through passport control but hopefully he will be looking out for us.

As you may have guessed from our diary, our sojourn into the dunes was cut short by a broken spring; thankfully not ours.  Oh well.

Our diary and photos are now up to date but we are unlikely to be able to keep it that way over the next 10 days or so. Please forgive us and stay in touch.

hi you two

i guess by the time you get this you will have been in the desert for quite a few days. hope you have seen loads - of sand! actually did you see good shooting stars? that was the best part.

otherwise how is mapenzi holding up? did you manage to get the squeaking sorted out?

looking forward to your next instalment.
