There are some further posts about our time in and after Nairobi still in the making. However, some concerned friends have contacted us recently as a result of our last post „Unintended Deceleration“, asking if now everything is okay with us and the camper. Hence we feel we have to post an all-clear signal: A-OK! All three of us are fine and also the camper is running again perfectly. (Maybe if I would have checked the engine in the workshop the injector issue would not have come up at all - LOL.)
Meanwhile we crossed the equator and are yet again in the northern hemisphere. Standing on the equator was not different than standing anywhere else in the world (which was, to be honest, a bit disappointing for me. Or have I been just in a wrong „space“?).

|Cluelessness in the workshop|
Ratlosigkeit in der Werkstatt
It was just a minor issue which should be fixed in a workshop which, BTW, was highly recommended to us. The emission control system was dirty. We could have carried on with it easily. Yet since we are in a big city we thought it would be better to have it done here. Well, they managed to fix it quickly, BUT.... after having cleaned the control system the engine could be started though it did not show any power. The mechanics then disassembled the engine, reassembled it, and since then the engine cannot be started! On top of that they „killed“ three quite expensive injectors!!!
