Does Tim have 2 Wives?
Tim Baker can get around on a motor bike rather quickly but someone wanted to know why Cyndy Rapp was riding behind him( not side saddle) on the motorbike? Then later today Tim was seen with Krista Baker transporting her back to the compound from Lujini School where she had been taking pictures of the construction. Hmmmm

There is a cultural difference that we have not thought of such as riding side saddle on a motorbike and transporting someone other than your wife on a motorcycle.

Thanks for this great photo! 

To my western eyes, riding side-saddle looks very precarious.  One big bump in the road, and the (female) passenger could easily be dumped.  

I'll be eager to hear what you all experience about "proper" female postures on the motorcycle.  

BTW, does this mean Tim is down to one wife?  LOLOL!

LOL, Maria!  Wicked church announcement! :-)  

Tim, you're going to be infamous very soon in Lui ... and maybe in Missouri too.  :-)

Love it! By the way, I made an announcement at church that the news from Lui is that you have two wives and to read about it on the blog.

This is Tim... I'm offering free rides for the rest of the women too! It takes a taxi service to get to the school site quickly. Walking in the equatorial heat is withering for us that aren't used to it!

Great story, Evelyn.  (And quite the attention-grabbing headline!)   

I thought maybe the Culotte Revolution of 2012 might have changed the attitude about riding astride a bike (whether pedalled or motorized).  Not so, eh? 

Maria on on motorcycle in Lui?  The very picture ...   LOL!

...and you know, I can drive a motorcycle...think of the heads turning in Lui (and the aspirations of the Mothers Union) if they saw a woman jockeying one...(thinking of how much fun it would be to teach some of the Mothers Union how to drive vehicles...)

That Tim!  He gets around.  Good thing I'm not on this trip or they might think he has three.

Now I am going to have to think up ways to tease him when he gets home. 

Great observation!
