Procuring your own transportation as a Kiva Fellow can be expensive, particularly when petrol hovers around $5/gallon. But while I miss the adventure of crowded taxis and mini-buses, I can go to the field on very short notice and have enough energy at the end of the day to update this very blog. So here’s the latest collection of photos from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, taken earlier today. Enjoy!
