Our second vehicle battery started to boil and filled the car with Hydrogen Sulphide fumes.  No problem we just need to get a new one.  Okay so we are in a remote desert town, our Arabic is non existent.  We pull up at a building that looks like a mechanical shop, open the bonnet and point at the battery.  Arabs are very loud, flamboyant and lots of babbling a car turned up and out comes a battery.  Amazing, they had it in before we knew what was going on, problem solved.
