During this year I am taking up a challenge to post a photo a day on this blog. I am a beginner photographer hoping to learn much about my camera and how to take photos.

Tuesday 7 December 2010 - Mthatha traffic
Mthatha is a hub town in the Eastern Cape. The main N2 highway passes through it on the main street and it's a commercial centre for a vast rural area. The result is constant traffic chaos and absolutely no respect for traffic laws. There are plenty of police around but they seem incapable of controlling the drivers - especially at intersections where the local sport seems to be to create a gridlock. One just have to keep one's sense of humour and be patient. Road rage is definitely not an option in this situation.
