Arriving to Denmate refuelling for the bikes and the bikers, chicken with French fries, mint tea and we start again. ď do you think we have to purchase some thing just in case ? we have only 100 km to ride itís only 2 pm, it will be ok ď

We pass at Iroultane, an area with dinosaur footprint, but we donít see because I didnít note it. ( we should return one day ).
After a ford, I lose the track on the right hand, mistake quickly corrected thanks to the GPS. Once again we ride on a nice mountain track, with landscapes and villages really superb.
We arrive to the built ford of Imi níOuaqqa noted on the Gandini guide, surprise, the flooding due to the storms , has broken the ford. The step is around 2m. On the opposite bank a young guy riding a donkey is crossing the river, and thus showing us where to cross over.
What are we going to do ?, how is the track further ?. We have already done 50 km from Demnate and normally it stills the same until Agouti our goal. Itís 4 pm, itís getting dark at 6 pm, lets go we try. Anyway we could return without many problems.
We decide to use the same way used by the donkey ( itís normal with an Honda 400 XR ). At first we have to cross a gutter built for watering, down a small slope, driving in the river and get over the opposite bank. Patrick goes without many difficulties, right before the eyes of the villagers,
