Who needs traffic lights? Not the drivers in Ethiopia - Video

This made me so uncomfortable.

Christ…

Oh look it’s Abuja in a nutshell.

aside from very few intersections this how it works in haiti. most of the roads ain’t paved either (though they’ve been working on that consistently)

how do people cross the street without dying

I’d just wouldn’t cross the street I’d have to plan out my entire life on one side of the street

Same thing happened in Ghana if have anxiety attacks in the car because I couldn’t understand how they were able to do this. It’s scary as hell’n

This is art. Talent. Wth.

It’s like this in Dominican Republic as well.

On June 11th 1963, Thích Quảng Đức, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, sat down in the middle of a busy intersection in Saigon, covered himself in gasoline and he then ignited a match, and set himself on fire. Đức burned to death in a matter of minutes, and he was immortalized in a famous photograph taken by a reporter who was in Vietnam in order to photograph the war. All those who saw this spectacle were taken by the fact that Duc did not make a sound while burning to death. Đức was protesting President Ngô Đình Diệm’s administration for oppressing the Buddhist religion.

holy shit. 

I was waiting for this to come up on my dash. You also can’t forget that his whole body burned, but his heart remained intact and did not burn.

This dude.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.

French photographer François Beaurain is putting a new face on the capital city of Liberia. Here the citizens become the teeth on a turning gear, “a piece of the conveyor belt that animates the city.” All too familiar with the countries storied past, François’ gives the people a lively presence often missed by the westernized world and buried under news stories that highlight the grim and shocking.

“I like taking pictures of Monrovia and I was looking for a web based project idea where I could involve local inhabitants,” François told me when I asked what inspired him to make these images. “There are very few examples of web based creations in Africa. Most of fancy projects you see on the internet come from the modern and rich westernized world. Here, most of people do not have computer and even less internet access and when I show people my gifs, they sometimes ask me if I am a wizard…”

“On the other side of the screen, people on the web are not used to see fancy things coming from the slums of Africa. I hope this creates a contrast able to raise the attention on this small and fascinating country unfortunately still famous for its civil war and child soldiers.”

Once one of the few five-star luxury hotels in Africa, the building sits atop a hill overlooking the city. Now it stands as a reminder of the nation’s former prosperity and a hope for things to come.
