Spending The Day Bringing A 12 Year Old Bike Back To Life

Luah needed a bicycle so we gave her the bike that Elena received when she arrived in San Jose 12 years ago (She only rode it once.) It has a nice comfortable seat that women love. I had to spend a good part of the day putting air in the tires, cleaning it up, buying and mounting a new lock, front light and a mirror for the helmet. Now Luah has a safe bike, “The things we do for love!”

About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
