This photo was taken on the road to my site of Kiffa, Mauritania. Having visited a fellow volunteer in the next town over of Geuro, we decided to try and bypass the usual taxi fee by riding on top of a semi. We had seen it done before by locals and decided to give it a try. To our surprise, the driver said yes and after a couple hours of delay due to a flat, we were cruising along in the daytime heat at 70mph. A great experience. And all it cost us was a pack of cigarettes.
