Once again this weekend I got to see the concerned and helpful side of Tanzanian police.
As I was leaving church yesterday, my motorcycle broke down in a busy intersection.
Because I was en route to a meeting and all three of the fundis/mechanics I know were traveling over the weekend, my only option was to leave my bike with the police at the checkpoint there (admittedly with a bit of fear and trepidation).
However, when I returned an hour later, they had found a fundi and my bike was fixed and ready to go.
Everyone around/involved was friendly, kind, and helpful.
