Motorcycle taxis speed toward Douala, Cameroon’s major port and commercial center.
Just getting around can be an adventure in and of itself in many parts of the world. In Cameroon, the motorcycle taxis are used by many people to get around the city of Douala. Most motorcycle taxis carry two passengers, but a few times I saw three passengers. I took this photo from the back of a taxi speeding in the opposite direction. There were hundreds of motorcycle taxis heading into the city, so I just snapped a couple photos at random. I was shocked that this photo captured the scene as well as it did!

Have you seen the blog called 850 Calories http://850calories.com/ ? It will break your heart.
Yes and I know several people who have taken the challenge. Having spent time in refugee camps, it is an issue close to my heart. Thanks for your comment!
I am glad to see someone who knows what to do is working on this. I look for other “good news” messages soon.

It is really a beautiful shot. It never ceases to amaze me all of the different ways to capture a moment. Love your blog, human rights is something we are passionate about.
Thank you so much, Katherine!
It’s surprising and fascinating at the same time how people manage to find solutions even with limited resources. They are not bothered by safety rules or bad conditions of roads because they value what they have. Love the simplicity.
Followed your blog, Jennifer, as soon as I saw your blog’s title 🙂
Thank you so much! I look forward to checking out your blog, too.
It’s fairly new, only 1 month old 🙂 will be uploading more interesting articles fairly soon, just after final exams
