Getting pooped on.

Brian is trying to help a friend of ours import a car to Malawi.  Last week he was told that his friend would have to pay 190% of the value of the car in taxes and duties. That means a $10,000 car would cost $29,000 in Malawi if you imported it legally. Sometimes cars are held at the customs office until you can pay the duty. Brian saw this one with more bird poop than he'd ever seen on any car before. I think our friend will look for a car that has already been imported and that has already had the bird poop cleaned off of it!

It's a Daewoo, too. Hard to get parts - here at least. That's a lot of bird poo.
