Still basking in the after glow , recovering from post traumatic road disorder and having found a hotel , that not only is the biggest in the whole of Moyale , which of course makes it very easy to find , but is clean , neat with great staff , I decided it was time to get down to some chores .
Victoria was in such a state after those roads , all my gear covered in the devils dust . It was time to take immediate action . I found a car wash just up from the hotel and set to task a well deserved rejuvenation package for Vic.
It was a sight to behold watching that high pressure wand was her woes away , the dust fled from the force , like a retreating army , revealing a very different Victoria on the otherside .
That chore out of the way I settled into the hotel , took my shower and went down to the restaurant for some Chai to celebrate our safe arrival in Moyale . My mood so buoyant and still on a high from the day , I had my favourite for dinner , some , yes you guessed it , goat stew with veggies and as the clock struck eight I was man out .
I had also decided to stay a day longer to do some laundry , update the blog , clean the travel off my gear and most importantly clean the air filter . Ali tracked down a motorcycle guy for me , also just up the road from the hotel , so much accomplished in a very short time .
Up early I set off to clean the filter , the streets still empty , the only movement , the dust of course and a few early risers like me starting their day . Moyale felt very peaceful in comparison to the place I had arrived in yesterday , but that would soon change as Vic and I became the central attraction and I got to meet a lot of Moyalians especially those who rode motorbikes.
Tomorrow we head for Ethiopia and see what that has install for us , I will keep you posted .
Until we meet again.
