Notable November Notes: 16

I realized today what a blessing it is to have cheap, and even free transportation! This morning, I got to make a grocery run for another family that is limited to public transportation, and ended up getting groceries for two families and myself in the process. I rode my bicycle, which meant that it didn’t even cost me the 1,000 Tsh that my motorcycle would have cost in petrol. 20k round trip is a pretty short ride, and an extra 5k to make the deliveries is nothing at all. Plus, I enjoy riding here. Weaving in and out of traffic, trying to make good time, and maximize the efficiency of the pavement is a game to me. Like in “Premium Rush.” Which, if you haven’t seen, you should watch. It might give you a glimpse into riding bicycles (or motorcycles) in Dar traffic. Because there are a lot of Dar drivers who are just as crazy as the dude in the movie (the one in the car, not the guy on the bike).
