As my friends and I would sit in Place John, we continually admired the hard work of the bicycle man.
Bicycles are an important part of life in Kasongo. And since people have next to no money, they must keep fixing and fixing their bicycles. A new one is not an option.
Note the woman in the background cooking on an old engine block.

Not only was the bicycle man well organized.
He was also creative with his solutions.
However, the bicycle man is not responsible for the misuse of the bicycles he fixes.
