|Africa Eco Race: Reconnaissance for René Metge and his team in Africa.|
Since the beginning of September, Rene Metge and his team are in Africa in order to refine the route to Dakar and finalize the road-books for the 2014 edition of the "Sonangol Africa Eco Race". All is going well for him and his team but the duty is not as simple as planned due to the changing weather conditions in this part of the world.
René send an email from portable satellite device, with some pictures and his impressions: "Since our arrival in Morocco, our journey has been quite “sporty” due unpredictable weather conditions. Indeed we are going through a lot of wind, rain and huge thunderstorms! Due to these condition we get very little sleep because we wake up very early in the morning and even wet sometimes," he reported.
"But even with all of that, our progression is normal on these beautiful tracks full of new things. We are now in Mauritania and I’m surprise to see this much vegetation! The landscapes are stunning and I’m eager to show them to the 2014 Africa Race participants."
