Forced Vacation

We intended to work on our bikes today, first to change the oil, then fix my mudguard, and finally make sure to tighten all bolts since we had been through very tough vibrations in the past days.

When we went to look for oil we found out that the city was on strike, and that all shops were closed, so we managed to get a drill from the hotel and fix the mudguard.

Our friends from Siliguri really did a great job with fabricating the spare part to match the original.

Although we were expecting the tire to arrive today, in light of the strike we know it wouldn't.

Since every thing was closed we went to the Buddha Stupa and witnessed the rituals being preformed by the Buddhists and monks.
