The Garbage on Samedi Street
Yes, Kibenga from the Terrrace of our house was lovely,
but it is really the third world.
This is the garbage pile in the street next to
the gutter where you do not want to look.
The good news is that Bujumbura now has garbage collection.
I don't know what they do with it, but they do collect it -
I saw this once myself.
The bad news is that garbage collection happens once a month or so.
I think they have one truck, and it makes it's way around the city.
So this is a two day pile that will grow into a six week pile in the 95 degree heat.
The piles grow big enough to block traffic,
but the chickens seem to like them!
