Yesterday, we watched a gloriously magnificent electric storm – lighting up the Atlantic Ocean – from our vantage point (undercover. Well, almost…aside from the leaky roof of the beach bar we were sitting in) in Gunjor, a fishing village just down the beach from where we are staying in Kartong.
The storm proceeded to follow us all the way back to Kartong and didn’t let up for most of the evening.
Keeping it short today as we the power is hit and miss – also, we have to get into Serrekunda to pick up medical supplies etc., before it starts raining again – the sky is looking moody again this morning.
More updates soon + photos from Florio, the photographer, himself coming soon. We promise! He has been entrenched in power cables, gadgets and solar panels since we arrived in The Gambia – “it’s all about the power” he said – as we figure out how we will charge everything when we are on the River Gambia Expedition. Some of the solar devices we brought with don’t seem to do what they say on the box…hmmmm….more on that as and when.
Please keep stopping by and feel free to leave comments. We’d like that 🙂
