I was impressed that the taxi drivers managed to finagle $100 out of everyone. Out of interest I just looked up the average monthly income in Tanzania -- more than 60% of the population lives on less than $60 / month -- so the taxi drivers made out like bandits. But good for them. The fact is that extra $50 meant more to that taxi driver than Colin could ever know.

Well, two hours' worth of gasoline will take a serious bite out of that fare in take-home pay, but, yes, it's still a princely sum.
