An Egg Truck – Lilongwe

An Egg Truck – Lilongwe

Taken just outside the capital, Lilongwe, this sort of scene was very common in Malawi. This guy had a job which was to protect the eggs and stop them falling over. Of course in the "developed" world he'd never get away with this, due to health and safety. Imagine how he'd go flying off the truck if they hit something! But having a job, or something to sell is important, with no welfare system to speak of. In Malawi there was always a feeling of vague anarchy, like not many rules and people making do. What rules they do have no one really enforces them anyway – especially on the roads.
