Already in the Tsavo National Park our fridge did not work correct. We pack our groceries in the fridge in JJ’s kitchen and visit Rob’s Magic, where we already purchased new shock absorbers a few days ago.
Our Soleonid is broken, the part which ensures that the second battery which powers the fridge with energy, is indeed loaded, but simultaneously prevents dasss the refrigerator empties the starter battery. As tiny as the replacement is so high is the price, 400 € / +- R 4000, but we have no chance, another victim of the bad roads of East Africa.
The weather is moderate, the camp site a muddy field, we reserve the luxurious room for one more night. To make things worse one of our two laptops does not work any more…..
