We had a big delay with the Genny not starting.
Waldo is a good mechanic who has done some work
for a Canadian NGO out here. So we were confident
when he started stripping the machine down, part
by part. He eventually fixed it (after several
sessions over a few days) and it was great compared
to the noisy and beefy 110v once which rattled so much
that the mains cord fell out.
Kenton made some new cinema screen poles. Here is a photo
of his workshop which is basically in the middle of
the street. We will be trying them out for the first time
Here are some goats taking shade in the only place available
in the street here, under a big lorry.
Here is another truck. It looked liked it tipped its load and
then the engine and the whole gearbox and diff’ fell out.
Mind you I saw some guys scuttling around underneath the other
day. They fix everything here. Machines like trucks, cars, vans
and motorbikes get a serious thrashing.
Heres out local family internet shop although today we’re off
to the UN building to see if we can use their wi-fi.
Alright, its not all hard work. Heres some kids we met at the
beach with their dug out canoe. They let us have a go. And here
also is the full moon from the 7th after we’d done a screening
at Belval camp. Its really bright here and you notice its
absence when it gets hidden by clouds. Theres no street
lighting and everyone lives and moves in shadows at night.
