We just arrived in Tarfaya in Morocco. A short while ago, we crossed the disputed border between Western Sahara and Morocco. In this little town where we are spending the night Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was stationed as a pilot for the French mail service and it’s here that he wrote his famous book ‘le petit prince’. Tomorrow we’ll visit his abandoned house. We had a long, long, beautiful but eventless day on the road passing sand dunes, camels and the deep blue ocean. The Land Rover’s engine refused to stop again, so we had to take out and clean the solenoid switch of the fuel pump one more time. Otherwise the car runs really well.
