Cannot make this stuff up. We left our hotel this morning for the five and a half hour ride to the dessert. Turns out to be the worst rains they have seen in 25 years. Roads in the desert are flooded out and the buses cannot continue to the desert. After 9 hours on the bus we land in El Foud where we were finally able to get to a bathrom and coffee: after 11 hours they rerouted us to a hotel. can not believe epic rains follow me from Ironman to hotel more later people waiting for computer.
