… is not something you are going to see in Venezuela, ever.
We bought a car last week, and even though we haven’t driven it much, since we don’t yet have insurance, we’re excited for the freedom to travel locally. Graham has been excitedly gibbering to everyone that we now have our own car, and most importantly that it has hubcaps. (Our rental car in Chile did not have hubcaps — quite distressing for the little guy.)
So when you drive a gas powered car you eventually have to fill up the tank. The previous owner gave it to us on empty, so we went to the local bomba (gas station) to fill her up.
While waiting in a line (a new cola to experience, hooray!) …
…I prepared by getting out this 20 Bs. bill (equivalent to 80 cents)…
…And then I realized how much I overestimated a full tank of 95 Octane gas…
…when the attendant asked for 3.24 Bs. (equivalent 13 cents).
I kinda just left all of the change as a tip.
Shocking… but kinda cool!
