February 28 Rest Day Yabello
Today we went to town and picked up necessities. After
having donuts and coffee at a bakery we bought baby wipes for showers and
more of an out patient clinic as far as I could tell. We negotiated with a
cellphone agent who was unwilling to sell me a sim card for my phone without a
photocopy of my passport and two passport sized photos for him to keep.
At lunch we saw the birders again. There were about 8 of
them looking even more anaemic than yesterday and applauding the platters of
kebabs and salads they were served. They had of course brought a bottle of 25
year old balsamic vinegar de Modeno with them from Italy. This afternoon we
cleaned and lubed our bikes and repaired the numerous punctured inner tubes we
have been collecting.
Rosalyn borrowed another rider's cell which doesn’t have
roaming charges and had her parents call her. She had felt homesick and then
better after a nice conversation with them. Happy Birthday Carolyn!
