A few more examples of the adventures I have trying to get around in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe:

To get rides home to my host family’s house for the weekend (I usually have a ride home with one coworker but on days when she has to leave early or doesn’t work I make other arrangements): talk to one coworker about when the Centre’s vehicle is dropping off people, find out the vehicle is leaving late and might be full, GET A RIDE WITH THEM ANYWAY sitting in the truck box with a few other people and all our bags… or… Ask one of my coworkers for a ride and find out she has to drop her kids off all over the place and can’t take me, ask another coworker for a ride, find out she’s leaving in 30 minutes, chase her down the driveway because she forgot me, ride along as we drop other people off, GET A RIDE HOME. 183 more words
