morning has broken..... Cat S again....
time to deal with the GS.
The aubergist told us that there is a guy on the other side of the oued how has a lorry/truck to take the bike.
also, we need a welder (not sure of my vocab here... a guy who attach together pieces of metal).
and the welder is at Msemrir.

let's cross the oued.
not so easy.
not because of the water but because of the many flields there are.

lorry's driver and lorry are in the grey house on the left.

the odometer showed a lot of kms.

Msemrir with the "mecano". This guy was extremely helpful and very gentle. If you stop by Msemrir, that's simple, they are on "la place du marché", market place.

He helped me a lot. that was very cool.

on the left, u can also see what the welder is doing most of the time when he dont have mindless stupid frenchs trying to ride on the piste with too heavy bike.......

here u can see the fix.
the prof knew what to do to fix the tube so I asked the welder to wait for him.
they worked together and christian saw that the welder knew his job ;)
he did an excellent job as I was able to come back with the GS in France.
