      I have stood on the corner you are photographing. Very nice capture of the hustle and bustle of Kenya.

      if the traffic is forever jammed then at least it's easier for pedestrians to cross? :)

      it's incredible now that I live in LA, how this seems chaotic. But it's actually not that bad and people do move a lot faster than the pic would portray

      @Pug!: You are right, it's quite easy to cross those roads as a pedestrian, but you always have to be careful!
      @rnjonjo98: You are right as well, this works quite well. And nowadays things work even better, now that all the matatu's have to be in full compliance to strict regulations. This picture was taken in december 2002. See for some more recent pictures (january 2007) my Кенија set!

      Why do they call it rush hour when nothing moves?
