Kórnik: Flat tire

The best time to get a flat tire is perhaps not when you are on your way to catch a plane from Europe to Japan...
When we were on our way to the airport, we got a flat tire in the middle of nowhere. It was a little bit worrying, since for this business trip we had had to sign a paper stating that if there were any extra costs because of for example missing your flight, the university would not pay. So if we were late to the airport, I would have to pay my return ticket myself.

Team work = one guy changing the tire, three guys watching, and one guy taking pictures.
Luckily, our Polish guide said that the Polish roads are very bad and this kind of thing happens all the time, so he was used to changing tires. He was slower than a formula 1 team, but changed the tire in less than 10 minutes and we had no problems at all in reaching the airport on time.

The only thing close to where we got our flat tire was a place selling Swedish made gardening machines.
