Eh Ama Takisi Driver

In South Africa, the scourge of our roads are the mini bus taxis. Although taxis fill the gap of non-existent public transport, they seem to be a law unto themselves and the traffic police seem helpless in their wave of lawlessness.

On this cold morning while getting some fuel into my vehicle, a taxi with a flat tyre limped into the vacant space next to my dowser. I had to smile along with the smiling faces of the taxi's advertising décor while the taxi driver pumped compressed air into the taxi's tyre while his helpless passengers looked on through misted up windows.
