The Second Invasion of Normandy
Team Limo2Africa arrived in Caen by ferry early today and offloaded for the drive to Bordeaux. Last night, Suna and Payo were fortunate to meet and get to know another team doing the Plymouth-Timbuktu run, Roger and John of Team Running Amoc. They are driving an authentic London taxi (no meter, however) and we have paired up with them for some of the drive through France and Spain.
Roger and John describe the highway characteristics of the taxi as 'a bit like driving a shed,' which means "Vegas" is getting about the same highway gas mileage as the cab is.
After arriving in Bordeaux, we all enjoyed a fine dinner at La Remise in the St. Pierre section of town and then hit the beds to rest for the drive into Madrid, Spain.
ODOMETER: 4879 3/10
