Starting the Africa Adventure

As I was packing for the trip, which is always last minute, Hussain Called me and told me that we have to visit the Botswana Embassy to receive our visa document. So we had to stop for 5 minutes at the embassy to get the document that would allow us a visa at the border. Something always comes at the last minute.

We arrived at Kuwait Towers around 4:10 pm, met all the friends, family and news media personnel thanks to Kuwait Riders who organized the event. Then we proceeded to the Salmi border accompanied by many of our biker friends who we said good bye to and headed to Hafer Albatan with a total of 266 km, not bad for the first day.
