Fixing bikes at Stella's

We work very hard on the bikes old bikes with their owners. These bikes were either ridden down 2 year ago on the first trip or sent in a shipping container last year.

The chief nurse is delighted when I fix a low power problem with his bike. Now the maintainance guy is trained up to set tappets by ear (since I did not have any feeler gauges).

New tyres, wheel bearings, oil, chain, sprockets, plug, clean filters (air and fuel). Other adjustments as necessary. Bikes all running very well afterwards!

In the evening we take a tour by boat around the Chimp santuary islands and have a few beers with Michelle Connolly (the Irish vet) and Declan. Michelle is running the place whilst Stella is away in the UK.
