Have finally reached our final destination and the finish line! Arrived a week ago on the 28th of August just in time for the Week 5 party! However we have only just realised that we didn't send an update to let you all know. Got caught up in all the celebrations and karaoke!
Been enjoying our time in UB despite the lack of things to do. Been making our own entertainment with the teams we convoyed with for the last part of the trip (Chapeau Nouveau and Jizzy Disco as well as our long time convoy buddies Fear and Roaming). The highlight being the first annual Man-day (invented by the teams). Celebrated on the last Monday of August, males all over the world participate in Manly activites. For instance we decided to celebrate by shooting some big guns and rocket launchers at a shooting range, followed by an all you can eat BBQ. Looking forward to next year.
Not long til we fly home now, everyone can't wait to get back. Will be nice to get a good nights sleep, have a proper wash and eat something other than goat for the first time in 6 weeks. Just a tad nervous about flying with Russia's airline Aeroflot. It has the worst saefty record of every airline company in the world. So should make for an exciting trip! Just today one of the boys from Jizzy Disco's flight got cancelled due to a piece of the wing falling off! Maybe Chapeau and the rest of Jizzy have the right idea by driving home.
Until then everyone is still around until we leave so the fun will continue to be had, starting tonight with the Week 6 finishing party combined with Dan from Chapeau's birthday and then some volunteer work for the charities we raised money for on Monday hopefully.
See you all Tuesday, can't wait to get back!
