For SAKAYO and i, it would be the first fully tarmac stretch of road, 4hr.20min to Marafa from Diani, 190kms and back.... Making it 380kms covered in one day and 8hrs of riding. I started early(6.30am) to Nyali to meet up with Ralf. Mother nature decided to start making things exciting by introducing a slight shower and slippery tarmac. The ride to likoni from Diani was therefore very sketchy, what with trailers from Tanzania filling the road with spray and matatus in a hurry to overtake. The ferry crossing was uneventful and the ride to Nyali rather pleasant. The weather had dried out as i crossed thr ferry and it was going to be a beautiful sunny day. Om arriving at Ralf's place, we talked a while and had coffee, before leaving for Kilifi.
