Car Pooling...African Style


Just thought I would share a photo that was passed on to me through email. I don't know where it was taken. Thanks Kathryn for the photo. While we have not seen any trucks this crowded, it is not unusual to see trucks that are poorly loaded, or loaded about 10 feet too high, listing to one side and yet there are tons of people hitching rides ON TOP of the whole load. Very scary looking and dangerous, but it is just a way of life out here.

Hey I just wanted to say hi, I was thinking of you today, I love this picture it is great. We don't see it as bad as this but some times we wonder how did they fit that many people on that. The other day I saw a woman on the back of a motorcycle taxi and someone gave her a goat to carry a really big one it was so funny all you could see as they drove away was the head and the back legs of the goat and it was screaming.
I just watched our Qu├ębec missionary video the other day I started to cry I miss our old group.
I would love to hear from you, maybe we can chat on skype.
