During this trip it is sure: first in Namibia I charged a family in the car, the night had come and at full speed and full charge the car heurted violenly not a stone but an elevated plate rock just emerging from the dirt road! By chance the gas tank was not touched and we brought the car in a town garage for inspection the day after; This car was doted of a double system of gears I never used and the garage workers engaged the wrong system without telling me: with wheels turning at different speeds we got a tire explosion in the Namib desert!!! What a fear to change the wheel in the great heat with possible horned vipers!!! Then we had a new problem with the car engine not able to restart (it was a new car!!!)! By chance it happened in a gas station! In the desert we should have died! They did not find the problem and additional chance in the next town there was a seller of this Japanese cars; They came in the gas station and tracted our car in their garage and were obliged to phone in Japan to find what was the problem helped by computers! They had a doubt about the box of fuses all seeming not fired but finally one was not well engaged and the problem was solved! Further in Zimbabwe, thanks to monks coming on a table where we was seating outside and crying strongly we saw coming to us an Egyptian spitting cobra absolutely deadly! The hotel waiters killed it with long branches!!! Finally in South Africa in the Kruger park we stopped one meter from a side rock which was an enormous male lion and after we had a repeated charge of a gigantic male elephant obliging me to drive at great speed with the reverse gear engaged!!! As You can see we had good angels!!!! Thank You Carol!

Yes as during some other trips strong events occured also with planes (4 times and severe, tornadoes, earthquake level 6 in Martinica, falling large tree just behind Pierre in Martinica after the earthquake and another in a curve in Yellowstones NP in front our car at full speed, our group large car totally overflowed by a sudden flash flood of mud under blue skies then by several others in Syria the last one totally unpassable and we had to revive all the precedent which had enlarged and returned several cars and a bus, a Masai woman getting in hysteric transes to have sexe with Pierreand touching him in public at the more desired place, a couple of rhinos charging our car in another South Africa trip, 2 severe attacks by young thiefs in Rio de Janeiro with knives to cut our fingers and take our rings (in full day on the beach among people saying nothing and police saying nothing), a big mountain slide in front our car in Sumatera and also incredible losses of glasses and of a camera that we refound miraculously after 50 miles driven in the wilderness; I forget many other things as the lemur care in Madagascar or my glasses theft by a monkey in Bali coming on my shoulder to pick them in my shirt pocket and disappearing with my glasses on the noose in the high canopy: That has needed 3 regims of bananas to have them back with the help of a Balinese man!!!!! And there are many many other stories!!! Thank You Carol!
