Its hard to believe it but on this day in 1826, explorer Major Gordon Laing was the first non muslim to enter Timbuktu. The story is quite dramatic as he was severly injured by the Tuareg before reaching Timbuktu, was killed a few days after leaving and so, because he didn't come back alive, missed out on a 10,000 franc prize!

Hopefully less dramatic for our ride to the topically named Three Daggers........
