Email from Tanguy on June12:  Hello guys,I made it! From Zagora to Foumz guid, de 120km piste took me 6 hours. I thought it was very difficult - sand, stones (thank you forexplaining me how to lift de bike when it falls) - but I didn't realize what was coming....The desert was more difficult then I thought.The first day, I fell, got stuck underneath my motor bike, hurt myankel (couldn't sleep all night)... I got my film taken out of my camera bythe mauritanian army. The desert itself took 2 days to cross. I did the"road" with two 4x4 (they took my gear). The problem was that they had no timefor waiting me to learn how to ride in deep sand. I got very distressed, exhausted ... but I did it! I learned on the way. The fact that we hadto go fast probably helped me to dare to go fast in soft sand (easier).Anyway, I'm happy it's done.Thank you for your message. I hope to see you again some day and talkabout our travels.Enjoy your travel!!Tanguy
