Running On Empty

Went to a shopping mall today.
Got there by "matatu" (overcrowded minibus), but splashed out on a taxi for the journey home.  Bad idea.
Turned out there was less than a pint of petrol in the taxi - and none at all at the petrol station!
Conked out in the middle of nowhere.
Note to self: check the fuel guage before getting in.
I used to do that, when I was here before, but had forgotten that taxis run on empty here.
