Potentially any car on the road is a taxi, you just hold out your hand and wait for someone to stop and if they are going your way or they have the time they will take you. Locals get charged around 500 tugrug per km us foreigners get charged around 800 per km (40p/km) still makes for pretty cheap taxi rides once you have the basics of 'keep going' 'left' and 'right'. Still it pays to have a pocketful of 500 and 100 notes.
Rough mental conversion runs like this: take away 3 zeros (or the word thousands) and half what is left to get the value in pounds (or if you prefer to work in US dollar add back in half of your pound value) so that 8000 tugrug is 8
000/2 which is £4 or $6
