-Ça c'est la guerre!- (That is war) Part I
Before the war
It took me two hard weeks through the jungle to make the 550 km to the last village in northeastern Gabon and there, in Mekambo, the easiest part was over.
No matter how hard one tries to prepare for unforeseen events, it is never possible to prevent everything. It had been almost 10,000 km since I had left Cape Town and since then I had been carrying 10 kg extra in spare parts.
I knew little and nothing about Gabon before crossing the border, and that is perhaps why I arrived there with so much interest.
