Bangled by Life

This is not unusual in the Kenya's Coastal town of Lamu where i visited recently for a training. Many atime we are bangled by life like this but we must keep the focus to get to our destination.

    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.

    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.
