As the sun set it lit up the skies from below and turned everything red. We put on music and we were having a great time with the whole staff, listening to Dimmi, Promesses (the Obama song) – the speach that says:
“it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like or where you love…”
One of the guys told me he gets the chills everytime we listen to it. We agreed that we would listen to it every evening on the rest of the trek.
even this 76 year old german guy came by to have a look
the greatest sunset
The guys on the pictures include Agapit, Rashiti, Kalisti, Thomas, Calvin, Gofrey, Hilary.
So here I am am on the road to Mekele in Ehiopia, a beautiful but really long drive. All of the sudden Halo comes on in the car radio, everybody is cheering, and I can’t help thinking “is there any place in the world where people don’t love this?”
This video shows my humble experience with the Matatus of Kenya: My friend Tekwane told me, that some of the of even more lighting and that these are sometimes joined by disco balls, posters, pictures, special seats – apparently, some have even installed used flightseats in their Matatus.
The greatest thing however, is that every day there is a new musical theme: there is reggae day, pop day, oldies day, party/dance day (friday), and so on… and the funny thing is, that traffic is so slow in Kenya that the driver has time to do proper DJ’ing while driving.
