Of lemons and pumpkins

Brief update on the car situation: the license plates still haven’t been found, however the pumpkin broke down less than a week after we purchased it. Apparently something to do with the fuel pump, which we must replace.

But all is good, because one of our good friends helpfully explained that in his experience of Africa, you need to go through about two or three cars until you find one that's worth keeping. Since we beat the odds with our first purchase in Sudan (our old car turned out to be brilliant), probability says we’ll now need to go through 4 to 6 lemons until we find a good one…
