Visit to the local school

Today was our rest day but we did not rest.

First job of the day was doing the dobie (laundry to you landlubbers).

Next up was a visit to the Gojella Junior School were we deliver and installed blackboards and solar panels and provided taxi rides to the kids on our bikes.

The school choir sang for us which was fantastic.

Gold Team were very prominent in all the activities and it would remiss of me if I did not single out Alex and Max plus Gary from Blue Team for their work in actually installing the solar panels.

I took on a supervisory role: risk assessment; demarcations; tea breaks and dispute resolution.

We also serviced the bikes and made adjustments and repairs.

All in all a very busy day.

Tomorrow we we have another demanding day ahead of us although rumour has it there will be a race arranged on the local airstrip and a wheelie school.

More people from Enduro Africa 2008 team.

The Irish contingent......Mickey and Kevin.

Constandinos from Cyprus.

Everyone calls him Costa because they can't pronounce his name and he met up with other participants in the Costa coffee bar at Heathrow!
