Let's start with the truck. After, some much needed maintenance, it got a few defective glow plugs; so it wouldn't start. Plan B was in the works. Jason managed to bum a ride with Pastor Bobby's ride to a discipleship group. On their way there they got pulled over by the police and then the transmission on the driver's car dropped. Amazingly, they made it to the meeting in time, caught a tap-tap to get back home with time to figure out how to get the truck fixed. However, we weren't sure how to get a ride to the parts' store. Thankfully, Makayla's art teacher offered a ride to and from her art class today.
I'm currently low on groceries and had planned to make our weekly grocery run today because Dan and Liz Carl, past missionaries and our advisors, were joining us for supper tonight. The non-running truck was the dilemma. Then, the brainiac idea came to have Makson taxi Jason in hopes of getting the glow plugs inserted before our dinner guests.
|This made me laugh. Jason looks so giant. Today he experienced two firsts (a tap-tap and a moto-taxi).|
When returning home Jason spotted the delivery guy on his motorcycle. He waved 'em down from the back of Makson's bike yelling, "vini, vini!" ("Come, come"). The delivery guy followed them around the corner to our house, Jason was able to make the pizza exchange and Makson was on his way.
Unfortunately, the store didn't have the glow plugs we needed. Tomorrow we'll tackle it again. However the pizza is in the oven, keeping warm and we're anxiously waiting for our dinner guests.
|Reasons they might exceed 30 minutes... just pick one. Watch out for UFOs. :) |
The US Embassy should add this to their warning list.
