Journal Entry:
Got a reasonably early start and drove into Douala. First stop was the shipping agent to figure out how the car is going to get to South Africa. Unfortunately it was lunch time so we had three hours (long lunches here) to waste. We went up to the hotel (actually the German seamen's mission) where the Truck Africa people were staying for a beer. When lunch time was over I went to the Internet cafe and the others headed for the agent to try again. Met the others back at the hotel. Shipping the car to South Africa is going to be expensive but there aren't many alternatives. The boat leaves on the fifth - a little earlier than we had hoped. Had a few beers and I camped on the roof (the others slept in the pool room.
