A Walk in Different Shoes

          Throughout our journey so far we have driven by and seen previews of the long lines continually winding around the gas stations. Unable to get fuel, this morning we experienced first hand the crisis as our plans to go on a city tour was rescheduled for a later time this week. Suddenly complaining about 4 dollar gas and 10 minute waits, seemed shameful as Issac our bus driver told us that gas was at 15 dollars per gallon and waiting time was anywhere from 6 hours to several days. Choosing to make the best of our situation, we decided that sitting in our hotel did not sound appealing. Instead we put on our tennis shoes, walked to a local market, and later heard good news that tomorrow we had plenty of gas to head on our two day safari! Today we chose to be flexible and to think on our feet (literally). Overall it was yet another amazing experience that opened our eyes to all the things for which we are thankful.
