The entry I had hoped to never make

Last night, our bicycle tires were stolen. Our first brush with theft on Mayotte, and I can tell you, it is not a pleasant feeling. Replacing four tires will run us about 300 euros. I'm speaking of buying the parts new because I refused to buy them used and possibly--who can say?--be buying my own tires back. In any case, I'm not perpetuating the problem by encouraging the market. So, the question becomes, buy new tires or a-whole-freakin' 'nother bike?


Finished and gone are the days of being a trusting fool. (Yes, the bikes were chained, but only the frames, not the tires. Stupid, stupid, lazy us.)
