matatu

– Small mini bus used for public transportation. Really bad drivers. Or really good depending on how you look at it. If Kenyans were affected by road rage (which for some reason most of them are not) it would probably result from an encounter with a matatu driver.

saw this one this morning and thought it was nifty. I really want to walk around and take pictures of all the cool Matatus that I see, but am too afraid someone is going to try and swipe my camera.

on another note. here are a few links with some interesting information. The first one is a summary of the current situation in and is worth a read: Sudan Tribune article.

this next one is a blog of a friend of mine working in for Shell. She and her husband write some extremely interesting observations and from quite a different perspective than your run of the mill humanitarian worker or travel bum. check it out:Warri Story
