|And a shout out to our trusty little Mitsubishi that swerved many a missing manhole, squeezed between lines of traffic and endured several dentings.|
I previously told of our little car's loyalty to us in refusing to start for the soldiers who cleaned out all the other private cars. Here is the extent of their efforts.
It will need some serious work, but we're quite good friends with a mechanic - one of my former English students. All cars are imported so they go for quiet a premium. It's nice to still have some of this investment remaining.
It's still parked at the school. We took the paperwork with us and with all the checkpoints around the city, it wouldn't be safe for anyone to move it off the premises: it could be confiscated and then we'd have to find a way out of that mess, which would, no doubt, be very messy.
