Don't mind me [Music] There's so many goats on the road this morning it's 9 a.m.
And they just even if you try to ride in between them it's just like yeah whatever Like pick your route they're so relaxed then especially this This little clothes shop full of goats I reckon that's pretty cool Spot I'm so lucky I stopped Actually I'm going wrong way Far out I went Wrong way for around 15 kilometers so I have to Turn around And go back This is not the road, I mean it's a nice road but it's not going to Lusaka Yes, this is the road to Lusaka Yes okay right [Music] I've done 455 kilometers since last Fuel station Wow, so now I'm really watching my speed because On the setup I have main tank, bus camel tank I can go up to 500 and I have still 50Ks to go so I need to like yeah I'm going like 80, 90Ks per hour so I don't run out of fuel Wow I think this is like the longest stretch I've ever done, even Sudan I think was less than that I think in Sudan we're like 400 kilometers stretches between the fuel stations but Here is like wow 400, 500 and there's still no petrol station so no wonder I fell so alone on the road I mean now I'm getting closer to Lusaka so we see the cars coming from opposite direction but before that it was just like no one just me and the trucks and even not so many trucks either No wonder locals don't own cars or motorcycles though, literally there's no fuel Oh dear, I think I see a fuel station Wow it's so crowded suddenly [Music] No fuel? Huh? No petrol Yes Thank you It was too good to be true [Music] Wow Let's see if we're lucky today Oh, that's a good sign Do you have fuel? Yes here - Yes There you go, four please How many does it take? Around You will fit probably now 14 Something like that I might as well How are you madam? I'm very well thank you how are you? Thank you, I like it too Oh my god way too far This is like my first petrol station Since 480 kilometers I'm coming you know from Malawian border That's crazy there was like nothing Absolutely nothing there No fuel, no petrol stations, no nothing People don't have cars, don't have motorcycles because they can't fill up hey Can I pay with a card? Brilliant, thank you And there's a petrol station maybe 10Ks in this little town No fuel I'll get two tanks Lucky if I didn't have two I would never make it here So I can go 500Ks with these two tanks but now I'm gonna be around the city so one is enough That's enough, that's all right Thank you Thank you, have a good day!
