Bodaboda

Boda-boda (or bodaboda) is a bicycle or motorcycle taxi, originally in East Africa (from English border-border). The name originated from a need to transport people across the "no-mans-land" between the border posts without the paperwork involved with using motor vehicles crossing the international border. (Wikipedia)

Andrew has caught a bodaboda from one end of Arusha to the other once when he was in a hurry. A somewhat scary experience in the traffic.

We have never let Oliver on one, but this weekend he has caught two, both on fairly quiet roads.

Below are Andrew and Oliver arriving home after getting a lift from the end of our street.
