Hi, Ayunnie, Oh, it is the

Hi, Ayunnie,
Oh, it is the same thing here in our country. Such a common sight of overloaded vehicles. Vulnerable to accidents. Unsafe, we say. But it also reflects a people's sense of adventure, the sheer creativity to innovate (on) the use of technology, the daring to take risks, survival skills. I shake my head and smile.

Daring to take risk

Hi Libudsuroy,
Yes its very risky to overload vehicles. in this month of July Kenya my country has lost 53 lives due to road carnage. we all know the major factor at play is poverty and under development. we hope for a future that third world countries will be developed.
I love your quote for sure everyday is a journey that takes us a step away from the point were the previous day.

Women have impeccable character, if tapped society realizes quantum leap in development
