Well, we didn't get to the DRC as planned yesterday. Nothing is ever perfectly executed out here but this time it wasn't our fault. We were at the port and had been stamped out of Congo by immigration when we found out that the ferry across the river had been cancelled for safety reasons. That was a bit of a shock. Who would've thought that safety actually counted for anything out here? Anyway, there is a lot of debris and it seems that the bank upstream has been tearing off
floating down the river at the moment so it is currently too dangerous to navigate. They were nice enough to let us back into the country to wait and our best hope now is for the ferry to restart on Monday. We found out later that these cancellations are quite common and last week the ferry was cancelled for the whole week. So we wait.... Ben is not too thrilled about getting further behind schedule, but the good news for us is that it has given me time to upload photos and even this little video clip of us crossing the condemned bridge in eastern Gabon.

Hai there,

Kees is always very modest in his emails and he made me curious so I googled your website. What a great trip, and nice to read he's still the guy as we know him. Enjoy his company and your shared adventures. Hang on in there and good luck. Give him and Bindy a big hug from Ties
