Feet up in OránFebruary 10 in Algeria ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C
It was a long and intriguing day.
Started with a wait for our friendly and comforting host at the front of the Sheraton Hotel of Oran. Who than brought us as quickly as possible to a telephone shop so we could, as modern people need, buy a simcard to communicate with the world again. Even navigation was a problem without!
The traffic is ..let's put it easy.. another thing.
It's a chaos but manageable. Now.
We will see tomorrow as we leave for Tlemcen.
We have been in the city of Oran and have been in the caring hands of Moussa, a cousin of Chafik, a man who witnessed the grow of the intention of this journey and the creation of Lieske during almost a year, only by messenger and Facebook, and I would love to visit and thank for all he did to make us believe in this.
We were the only tourists in this city. So guess how surprised people are.
Lieske is as always the showgirl.
Many beeps, horns and thumbs-up. Selfies and pictures.
At this moment. Lieske sleeps in a underground garage, and we are 6 high in a apartment, somewere in Orán.
In need for a sleep, as this day was full of new and very intense meetings, talks and experiences.
Busy, crowded, intens, sometimes terrifying but always kept safe by our new friends.
Many thanks! Ali, Snoucy and Moussa!
I am doing short to you, bu t i really need to sleep. One day, we will make up.
