Spent part of the morning checking out the car, all is well except the usual suspects. Enjoyed some traditional Serbian food at dinner time and then it was time to go back to the camp. The day started being very hot as usual, by 3 pm, it got 'muggy' and I could tell a storm was brewing. By 8pm it started to rain a little, then it got heavier, then came the lightning and then the thunder. It was quite a spectacular light and sound show. I crawled into the tent as soon as I hot camp.

Mercedes parts...
A while back I read "The Adventure Capitalist," written by a venture capitalist entrepreneur who became a millionaire before 30. The book is about his adventure of driving around the world. He modified a Mercedes SUV chassis by hooking it up to a sports car body. He figured that every country would have a Mercedes garage as every tinpot dictator owns one, if not a fleet. This car also saved his life a few times as the border guards in such dangerous places as sub-Saharan Africa were so astonished by his car that they forgot to kill, or at a minimum, steal from him. An amazing book for someone like you. Why can't you find parts?!!!
