Entering Gambia was as easy as a land border could be, stamp out, leave the passavant with customs, and stamp in to Gambia without the need for a visa. The 30 day passavant was delivered in the same building for about 10 euro, by well dressed officers. Quite a sight in West Africa.

We enjoyed the comforts, and were joined by Pim, a Dutch biker on his old africa twin. We took it all in, a massage, Dutch fast food, a couple of nights out and looking on in amazement at all the older European women with their 40 year younger loverboy. Of course the elderly men also prayed on the fine looking 'gazelles'. The hotel owner told me later, that many of these girls are not even Gambian, they come from as far as Nigeria to try their luck with these rich white men, all hoping for visa and a better life.
