The Boda-Boda Taxi Service

Many of you may have been wondering what David has been up to these days. As you can see from the picture he's been having fun using the local taxi service here in Uganda. "Boda-bodas" are a favourite mode of transport here and it's not uncommon to see whole families riding on one of these motor bikes. The name boda-boda originally referred to bicycle taxis but is now used for motor bikes as well. We've seen bodas with bed frames, huge bags of charcoal and according to one witness someone driving with three sheep! People often hire a boda for a quick trip to town and David has needed to do that for some of the work he's been doing in Kiwoko our closest village. It certainly makes a change from the 'C' train!
