Turn it down!
When riding in a taxi brousse in a third world country, the situation often arrises that music is played. While this is usually an unchangeable situation, occasionally the opportunity arises to fix it. Please realize that the music being played is usually in a foreign language, played too loud on low quality speakers, and for some reason there is always a speaker right next to your ear. This exact situation arose last week while 9 of us PCVs were in a car. I of course was sat next to the speaker. After repeatedly requesting the driver to turn it down...an opportunity presented itself. Since the driver had his own speakers he hardly noticed when someone unwired the speaker blasting in her ear. Thank goodness for a simple wiring set up and music so loud the driver can't tell when some speakers aren't on.
