Dust and Diesel – Sign of life, part 5 – 20.01.2013

January 22nd, 2013 Posted in Backstage Tags: , ,

The rallye is officially over. We arrived at the Zebra bar in Senegal. The perfect place to relax after these exciting weeks. Everybody is fine and trys to deal with the impressions of the journey. Not so easy, as there are a lot.

It will surely take some weeks to realize what we have done. Senegal is where black Africa begins and the oppressive feeling, which we encountered in Mauritania, flies away. The people seem to be happier, although they are not really better off.

As the first participants prepare to leave, you realize that even though it was a group of more than 50 people, it’s hard to say goodbye after such an adventure. And it really was an adventure. The desert, poverty, heat, dust and diesel. I am glad that I went on this journey. Now that I am back at home, I will dare to reflect.
