The ride from Labe through the heart of the Fouta Djalon hills towards Kindia in the south of Guinea was simply stunning. The photos don’t really do the place justice unfortunately, but perhaps they give an idea of what it was like. The journey took longer than expected, primarily because one day we ended up on the wrong road, another day I had a continuous saga with my rear tyre deflating and my pannier breaking and then just because I have had dodgy guts for the week which has made me even weaker and made the hills even harder to climb / drag my bike up.

Anyway, I’ll post a full update of the adventures when I reach Freetown and have time to write more. Enjoy.
