Ended up purchasing tickets at 6am on Wednesday the 12th to a World Cup game, Cameroon vs Croatia. Long story short, Wednesdays are the only day you can apply for your visa and on Tuesday we had no proof of having a ticket! We purchassed a ticket on Wednesday morning and now we wait for our visas to get mailed to us. It should take two weeks, so now are taking it easy as we go down the coast. Friday and Saturday were spent meeting up with a friend we met at doe bay, the same weekend Matt and I met. Getting together with Kevin was great and he had all ready gotten a campsite right next to the river!
The next day after arriving was nice because we set up camp and didn’t have to take it down and repack. Many of our days have been spent staying only one night and leaving the next, it can be exhausting at times to be continually on the move. We spent the day hiking up to a spectacular gorge area, ending up hiking and swimming the majority of the day. We spent the night by the fire, it really did feel like we were camping!
For Sunday we had heard about a free camp site were you have to drive ten miles on a dirt road and it had been said to be the most beautiful camp site there is. So we went and checked it out. Prewitt ridge you did us well! The views were in fact amazing, seeing the sunset and then sunrise the next morning was awesome. There was only one other set of campers yet they were not in sight. Prewitt ridge had fascinating views of the coast above the clouds and of the mountains all around us. :)
