Fale with a capital F

For those of you reading along at home, you'll know that we've been pushing to get the X-ray truck operational before the end of my visit.  We were making pretty good progress, putting the finishing touches on the body - including placing the steel panels around the generator that were left out by the body builder.

Unfortunately, we've been stymied by the electrical system.  I've learned waaaay more about generators than I ever thought possible.  We went to great lengths to get a new part from Mombasa on Monday, and it was installed today.  However, despite assurances from the company and the best of our own ability, it did not solve our problem.  Sadly, this means that the truck will not be able to roll out fully functional by next week.  Fale.
