Picture of the day

After yesterday's crash someone has decided to put our expedition under full POLICE protection. We are not allowed to go anywhere without the POLICE now. They are very helpful, and we are happy for their protection!! They even escorted us to the hotel and to the interent cafe, from where I write now...

Hallo Louis et al,
hope you have a good time in Syria. Did you visit the Photovoltaic Laboratory in Aleppo?
Enjoy Damascus, and all the best for your trip further on to Jordan, Egypt and so on.

Greetings and best regards as well to Eng. Samir Safadi, Chairman of the Board, Syrian Environment Association. I guess, he will take good care of you, your team and the solartaxi.

Greetings from Germany, Roland

Nice vehicle. The solar panels would provide even more energy is the angle to the Sun was correct all the time. That is why I have my solar at home tracking the sun at the best angle and use efficient NiMH batteries to drive around.
You also have to be careful the panels don't get broken as you drive around. They are glass and not made for road bumps or accidents.
Drive safe.
