Wordless Wednesday 015: Matatu in Kenya


Not really wordless today but please indulge me. This is how I go around in Kenya when I was there for a year. Although there are big buses and trains, the matatus, a local taxi, is the most common mode of transportation everywhere in Kenya.

A matatu ride is not for the faint-hearted though. For one, the drivers are madmen! They race against each other, competing for the next passenger they can pick up along the way. Reciting the rosary, I found out, could make one calm, I tell you. If you like to know more of my matatu experience, just click this link and it will take you to my previous post about matatus.

  • That looks like a fun ride! I am from the Philippines and I’ve ridden in a passenger motorcycle that can carry 6 people. Yes it’s crazy! And it’s going to the mountains too.
