Crossing the border and another Quarry BC,we drove on only a few kilometers from Equatorial Guinea . We got to Lambarene where Albert Schweitzer had his hospital and a visit to the museum and hospital. This was another long term ambition and it was fantastic to see where this great man and Nobel prize winner spent his life .After our radiator blew a hole we made it to Lope national Park where we laid up for a few days while repairs ensued. We went on a game drive seeing the rare forest elephants, various monkeys etc On our way again ,the radiator gave up again and we found ourselves staying at a logging camp while repairs were made after being rescued by the manager in the middle of nowhere-lucky. We continued on through Franceville and Bongoville and finally leaving for republic of Congo. Gabon is a great place and we look foward to returning. They love their beer!
