I came downstairs for breakfast this morning at 7.30 and found these two parked outside of the hotel, in the car park.
What? An old Beetle and an old Beemer? With Czech number plates? In Mauritania?
Now THAT is a story.
When I got into the restaurant, there was nobody there I didn’t know. Hmmm. They must still be in bed. That stood to reason as I’d got back late from the airport, around 2 in the morning, and they weren’t there then. I had my breakfast and popped back into the hotel and asked at reception how long they were going to be staying for.
Client confidentiality being everything here, they told me they were only there for one night.
Rarely for me, I had something to do that morning, so just before 8.00 I headed to the office, leaving these behind me.
By the time I got back to the hotel, they were gone, disappeared off, into the Saharan sunshine. I would have loved to have spent a bit of time them, ask them their journey and more importantly, why?
Sadly, its now very unlikely I’ll ever see these again. If anybody knows them, please get in touch with details of how I could speak to them, that would be fantastic.
