Yes its me again Natnas the constant travel companion of team Lipstick and I will try to give you up to the minute reports about the happenings of yet another adventure of Team Lipstick.
So far the boys have been struck by Chinese bureaucracy and formalities and unfortunately their itinerary is suffering a slight delay. In order to calm their nerves down a little bit I took the liberty to take them to a German pub in the middle of Shekou’s famous “Sea world”.
That’s me – NATNAS – I found a nice spot on the Umbrella of the Bierhaus in Shekou
Fortunately for Andre there was a fan attached to the outside of the building and this came in handy to sort of cool down his processor very much the same way like a computer needs a fan to keep all systems going.
Andre cooling nicely down outside and inside…
I can report that the boys were working hard in installing all the necessary navigation and tracking systems in the car today and roof top box was fitted
As well as the spare Diesel tanks.
One of the rare occasions when tall Andre also needs a ladder…
I was told that the team needs to take Lipstick to a local car inspection place very much like doing a “roadworthy” in South Africa . This will enable them to legally attach their Chinese number plates and off they can go – I cant wait to see all the nice places along the Silkroad and promise to keep you updated
Lipstick is kitted out and the team is ready to hit the rad again….
About the happenings along the road – bear with me if we sometimes may lack
Internet connection – I will download as soon as we can reach the world wide web in places where it will work.
I salute you all and send you best greetings.
