You know those days when everything goes right even when things go wrong? Like when you lock your keys in the car in the middle of town and don't have a spare but there are suddenly a string of really wonderfully marvelous people there to help you? I walked over to Sameer's the local spare parts shop and the lovely lady there walked with me through the grotty back streets to help me find someone to break in. She took me to the fabulous chatty Mr. Banduki (meaning gun, a mismatched name if ever there was one!) who has a tiny little locksmith shop next to the Lively Lady (where the lady got shot last time I was there, if you've been following!). Mr. Banduki sent someone with me sort out the lock on the car. AND not only that but a friend of the lovely lady from Sameer's even gave us a lift back to where the car was. And the guy with his MASSIVE bunch of keys got in in one second flat. Literally. Hmmmm, almost as quick as when the thieves broke in and stole my tyre.....
And, because I am rather scatty of late (I am at the best on times) and Arusha traffic is a marvel of chaos, there were numerous occasions where I nearly bumped into people/cars/bicycles/glue sniffing youth but swerved/braked/looked at just the right moment and didn't kill anyone. But this is something I am amazed at every day.
So you know those days? Where everything goes right and you feel all grateful to humanity? I had one of those.
