      Things happen for a reason...

      March 1, 2020 in Algeria ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

      After we left the very welcoming Hotel Milev,
      who did not want us to pay anything for our two day stay, it did not went very smooth..

      I took the wrong route, so I turned, and by doing this, I did not notice the police officer, who, in Algeria, dictates the rules.
      After a time costly power demonstration, we were free to go.
      Sadly I had to turn again, and pass this officer again, who, again was not happy to see us...
      Finally on route. Climbed a mountain, as by Instagram a message appeared: you forgot your passports...
      Scheisse.. back to the Hotel. Avoiding the officer. That was the biggest challenge...
      All in.. we arrived in Constantine.
      We were lost and i was horrified by the traffic.

      Chaos, traffic jam, and the infrastructure was very strange.
      One mistake, and you had to go all around the city again. Back in the jam.
      And not an easy route. All hill up.
      So there was that moment I wanted to decide to cancel this city and go to Timgad. Constantine for us.
      But our host, who could not host us.. :) convinced us of giving it another try.
      And I..We.. must admit: this is a wonderful city!!
      And our host surely did his best to make it into an experience!
      We walked all the bridges, saw the most magnificent scenes, but also did a unbelievable intens city expedition under the first one of Constantine's bridges.
      Bab El Kantra.
      A place were normally you would not find a tourist...nor a citizen of Constantine.
      I had to overcome my fear of heights, but it was worth the effort.
      We met with Spanish Jordy, a host Bardo and Yassine. And together went for an early diner.
      We had to leave Lieske at the secured parking in Old Constantine and took the tram to the new city, were our host, Billal, with his lovely family was waiting for us.
      And now..
      I have to sleep!!
