One of the longer stages trying to cover the 120km detour asap !
There should be some nice live-pic. from the run in the LifePilot section - as well as one disturbing photo of burning savannah 1km before the finishpoint. It could be charcoal burning (a problem: resulting in deforrestation many places in E. Africa) gone out of hand; or illegal safari-hunters trying to round up' animals wich becomes easy targets as they flee the fire. Sadly that happens near some of the nat. parks.
On a positive note:
During the next days I'll try to transmit live video from the remote roads of Tanzania (to Finland tv, Vo2 sportsseries). It goes via the LifePilot system too.
