After packing and leaving my hotel my plan was to limp the bike 30km across the border into Senegal where I had the correct money plus parts would be easier to get. The chain lasted all the way.
I cleared Guinea ok and then found out I had another 30km to the Senegal border post. Oh well the chain had lasted the last 200km.
I cleared immigration but at the customs post there was a problem. I needed insurance but the guy who sells it had no papers left. His boss would come at 6pm with some more. This was 11am.
I found a bike mechanic who fixed the chain with a hammer by hitting the chain roller turning over the end. The side plate cannot come off now.
I spent the afternoon reading and got a Senegal sim for my phone so i can use the Internet.
6pm then 7pm and no sign of the insurance guy. The customs guy said i could sleep in their compound for the night. It is now morning and my wait continues. …
