|Sometimes we had to cycle on the road which connects Mombasa with the Congo. Also called the "Highway to Hell" because of the heavy traffic. NO Fun 4 us!|
|But most of the times we could take smaller roads...|
|...which also could be quite challenging.|
|Cycling without hands. A dream comes true.|

|The bikes are on board. Ready to leave!?|
|NO!!!!!. It took us 13 hours to leave the port. Cargo loading takes time in Tansania.|
|Captain Dr. Otto at work. The MV Liemba was built at the Meyer Papenburg Werft in 1913.|
|The first step to get new passengers on board: Throwing a rope towards the ship.|
|Step 2: Climbing!|
|Almost everything was brought from the small villages along the lake to the ship.|
|Nice views on the Nationalparks of Tanzania and Congo.|

We survived the trip with the MV Liemba and are happy to be back on the road. Even thou it was a great experience.
Tomorrow we will cross the border to burundi. Again, there will be a lot of mountains for us to climb.
