East Africa: everyday life


Thursday 21 May, 2015 by Uncle Spike

This all started out as a post about open markets of East Africa and then posted some pics of the wonderful African kids we came across on our travels, and finally shared some images of what I termed ‘roadside life’. After all that, I received some requests for a few more, so here’s a few more of ‘everyday life’… 




Old fashioned bicycles, pick-up trucks, men in suits on dusty street corners.




Driving through a quiet street 🙂




Scratch cards and Coca-Cola – some things are the same the world over!




Fabulous colourful shirts and standing up in the back of a pick-up.




More power lines than a 12-string guitar.




…and some of the best graffiti outside of the Bronx.

    I love the colors of the buildings they so fit the world of color that they reside in!

  3. Hi US!
    Don’t know what country these pix are from, but was instantly reminded of the wonderful No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series of books by Alexander McCall Smith. Set in Botswana.
    My best friend was in Nigeria last year. She was entranced by the colors of cloth there.


...waiting to hear from you...
