Tyre Valves

Here is an interesting observation of how things are done in Tanzania.

Last week I had a set of 4 new tyres put on the truck. They told me they needed to put two new valves on, the others were fine.

When I got home I saw that one (and only one) of the new valves was extra long. I knew this could cause a problem and when that night, Anne's dog started to chew it I knew there were problems.

So, today I went back and told them the problem. They immediately went about fixing it (very professionally)

Even though they put the wrong valve in they still charged me Tsh 3000!

Not that I am really worried, it came to about $2.90!

It's always fun in Tanzania !
