DAY SIXTY-FOUR We left early and were at the town of Zinder by 10:00. We bought food in the market & had cold drinks then carried on.
The country rapidly turned from scrub to stony desert as we headed north.
The highlight of the day was at mid-afternoon when we stopped for water at a well. They were using camels to hoist water out of the 120 foot deep well and there was a hive of activity going on around it as local tribesmen fetched water.
We carried on and stopped in the late afternoon to set up camp. Linda and I slept on the truck.
