I really like stairs....

yesterday we experienced our first day working with our clients, the Tanzania Police Force. The morning was filled with all sorts of meetings, introductions and discussions on different locations. On the way to our very first meeting with the Inspector General of Police Saidi Ally Mwema we were a bit late. So we used the elevator. We were about 12 people squeezed into a tiny space like sardines in a box, but we all fitted in and it went up. Suddenly all lights went out and the elevator stopped. It was very scary. But thanks to our database specialist Raghu, who studied the manual of our cellphones, we had a flashlight and found the emergency button. We pushed the button, but it didn't work :-( Obviously the power was gone. But people in Tanzania are strong and use their common sense. They pushed the doors open with their united strength and we all could go out. Thats why we really like stairs.

Our project with the Police analyzes the local travel system. Here are some pictures of Tanzanian vehicles:
