The daily grind.

For those of you stuck in traffic jams heading to or from (or both) work, you have my sympathies.


The commute in Sudan was rarely easy, always something getting in the way.


There was rarely a day when the road was empty.


Even when I got to the office, I wasn’t safe from the local wildlife.


Enjoyable times, but a crazy place to live.

    This post made me smile. Just yesterday, while trying to make it to an appointment, I was frustrated in traffic… having finally made it past several school buses unloading students, traffic continued to creep along at a snail’s pace. I thought to myself “Someone must be leading a cow!” which was a phrase I got from my grandmother, who grew up in the rural Dakotas. Now today I open your post to find someone herding MANY cows. 🙂

    • I’m happy to have brought a smile to you.
      Those cows were herded often. No matter what time of day I tried to drive that road, somewhere along it, someone was herding cows.
      It never bothered me at all, I enjoyed seeing something that I’m very unlikely to see again, but my fellow passenger, a short tempered Canadian, was always cross, which used to make ME smile.


      • In India we occaisionally got stuck behind an elephant. I can assure you that driving along slowly, staring at an elephant’s arse is not the most edifying way to start the day. Don’t even ask about the cows in India. Suffice to say that they had right of way regardless, and if you didn’t want a riot on your hands just accept that.

      • Exactly the same in Pakistan mate. Seeing them in the middle of the road is surprising enough, realising that they have right of way over you, even more so.
