No Fuel

No or little fuel to purchase.  The rumour is that the next tanker will not arrive till Friday which means we could start to see it being available Saturday/Monday.  I waited an hour in a queue today to purchase 10 gallons.  Generators are not running 24 hours to conserve fuel, since you are never sure when things will actually show up.  Our mission facility supervisor has taught us to never let our vehicle get below half a tank for this very reason.  So, with the 10 gallons today we have a full tank.  This should get us into next week.  More fun in Liberia. Don't take things for granted - water, electricity, fuel, internet.  In Liberia no fuel means no electricity, no pumps to pump water in to the storage tanks, no internet, no transport.
