The way Ugandans do certain things doesn’t make sense sometimes.  I have yet to find one that will ever fill up their gas tank.  Sometimes on one simple trip into town, we may end up stopping for gas 2 or 3 times.  They buy as much as they need in the mean time and that’s it.  There are no gas stations in Kinoni, but they don’t think enough ahead to make sure they have enough gas to get back to Mbarara.  Instead they have someone in a duka down the road that will sell you one liter of gas out of a water bottle just to get you to town so you can buy just enough to get home and then do it all over again.  I don’t think any Ugandan will ever see the little needle come off E.  They just don’t seem to fear running out of gas and that is something I don’t think I will ever understand.
