There are a lot fewer cars today somehow. I don’t hear the mad traffic, the loud honking or the “wewas” zipping around.
“Wewas” are motorcycle taxis. The word is in Tshiluba which is a language spoken in the Kasai ex-provinces of the DRC.
It literally means “you there”.
Maybe it so quiet because it’s a holiday today 🙂
I can stil hear some honking here and there.
A friend once told me that he noticed that here in the DRC it was crazy that the horn is used to communicate rather than as an emergency or a call to attention.
I realise how right he was. Nowhere else is honking so overused!
The sun is out and the weather is blisteringly hot. There was a little evening rain yesterday.
Everyone is at home.
Some took yesterday off. Some will take Monday and Tuesday.
Why can’t everyday be this quiet?
It’s usually a loud and smoggy city, but today is a little bit better!
