4/11/89

First thing on the agenda for the morning was a very cold shower. Water is in short supply in Tamanrasset so the showers & taps only go for 2 hours in the morning & evening.

After a meagre breakfast of corn-flakes and tea made with lukewarm water heated on the [broken] cooker, we took the truck into town and spent the morning looking round. We went to the Post Office to check for our mail – I didn’t get any and Linda eventually found a letter from Helen filed under “R” of all things!

We had a drink & something to eat at a cafe then took turns watching the truck. Some of us went to a local hotel with Zorba and had lunch washed down with a large quantity of red wine.

We got back to camp & crashed out for an hour or two then we all walked back into town for a meal at another restaurant.
