Tonight I went to a beachside reggae concert. In typical Timorese style it started about three hours late. The music was good and it was great to see public entertainment in Dili. Earlier in the day I had success in fixing the broken cable of my Rohloff gear system. I read all the instructions I could find and watched numerous instructional videos until I was confident I knew what to do. I managed to pull it off. The tricky bit was cutting the cable to the correct length. With my gears back to normal, I treated my bike to a massive wash – after the wedding last night I made my way to Emily’s house by crossing the shallow Comoro River; in the process the bike got heavily coated in salty mud and I came out looking like the boogeyman.
