American's are not allowed to complain about potholes. One morning before prayer we were standing by the gate watching water gush out of this water main break. Suddenly this car comes along and decides to drive through the water, not around it. We had to "help" push it out - I say "help" because a guy with a diesel pickup came along and used a tow rope to drag it backwards out of the hole. We were just there to get our shoes wet and look useful. Afterward we found a stick to put in the hole as warning to other motorists. The hole was over a meter deep! So no more complaining about roads in the States!
