The "Boda" Taxi

Asking the Cost for a Ride.
Local Transport in Gulu, Uganda

In Mozambique they have taxi bicycles and here in Uganda there is a slight upgrade, - the motorbike.
The "Boda" taxi, as it is called, will carry up to four people, including all their luggage, even the family goat.
Sometimes they are hired by one individual with supplies, such as a window frame, a bed or even a wheel-barrow!
How they manage to balance is a mystery, but they do.
The owners of the boda's are often found  in groups at street corners, chatting and waiting for a customer to approach and hitch a ride.
