The next day (11.03.2013) at Mata Mata, a huge truck maneuvered in the red sand to deliver its oil ...
I found it, got stuck in the first little hill and we had to make a detour.
The driver spent the night at KTC and the morning after everything was back normal, but it took 2 days to "fill" the holes left by the huge wheels of the truck. I thought a lot of small cars and the "only" 2x4 :shock:
