Tanzania: Pedestrians’ tales

Mara writes about pedestrians’ experiences in Tanzania: “Pedestrians have nothing close to the right of way around here. The bigger you are, the more authority you have. The faster you go, the more people are expected to dive out of the way when you approach. Motorcycles swerve to avoid 4×4s and trucks; bicycles swerve to avoid the motorcycles.”
