After Diema the road widened into two lanes. It's filled with pockmarks, so drivers try to avoid using it. For a stretch we drove down a riverbed instead. Despite road conditions, we've reached a more populated area. We passed bigger villages with posted names. We saw a roadsign and after a week of bushcamps that sign seemed to us more like a monument to civilization than a simple direction displaying the distance to the nearest city. After a week without a shower we smell so bad even goat herders avoid our company.
We need a bath much more badly than them.
Village classroom. Where are all the students? Checking out the tourists outside. We watch them, they watch us.
A woman displays local tupperware.
