Stuck Truck

Sewer systems to manage rainwater are absent in Uganda. In their place are deep trenches, however unhelpful they are, alongside only some of the roads. Occasionally, given the propensity to drive four or five cars wide on a two-lane road, we’ll come across a truck or car tipped sideways with both tires inside that trench. Unfortunately we’re not always able to get a photos of that mishap because traffic pushes us along. This time, though, we came across a taxi hoping to navigate his way off Entebbe Road…with not-so-good results. Take a look.

This guy was trying to single-handedly return all four tires to the pavement.

Adding a second guy, well...I'm not sure what the results were.
