So you think you can handle a bike............

This is my driver, Joseph, easing his way over a temporary bridge on the (only) road to Kibyimba school. The old bridge had been washed away during the last rains. The gaps between the tree trunks are in places easily wide enough to swallow the bike's wheels. I chickened out and walked across, partly to help him balance the bike better but mainly because I didn't fancy being dumped many feet down into a rocky ravine. A broken leg out here could be fatal! If you're in a 4WD with fat tyres, though,this bridge is a doddle.
