Description

This picture of boys riding through town on a dala-dala, the traditional Tanzanian mix between a truck and a taxi that characterizes urban Zanzibari streets and epitomizes their richly fast pace. Because Zanzibar is very rural, the presence of dala-dalas usually means that the area is also more developed - you can see the electricity wires in the photo. Urban Zanzibar is also swarming with youth, as demonstrated by the throng of boys crowded into the vehicle. This scene is typical for urban Zanzibar, from the dala-dala to the tropical trees to the make-shift shop on the left.
