Oils from Namibia – Heathrow Cargo revisited

Another shipment of Marula and Kalahari Watermelon oil has been sent over from Namibia by Salmi who setup the women’s cooperative Oontanga oil.
So once again we had to drive our little car round the M25 to pick up the huge jerry cans full of oil.
Well actually I had to do it twice. The first time I was able to pick up the paperwork from our ‘handlers’, technical term there, but I forgot that I needed my passport to actually pick up the goods- not happy 😦
So anyway back again the next day this time with big K ready to do the heavy lifting.
I forgot how overwhelming the lorry park at Heathrow cargo is. You get some idea from this photo but it doesn’t quite capture it.

Here he is looking like a proper trucker – minus truck

And here I am ‘truckers moll’

    You should try Thurrock Services any night of the week – now that’s a scary place!
