I took this photograph a couple of weeks ago whilst stuck in a traffic jam on the way to the airport. In daylight this part of the city is pretty ugly. The muddy river is strewn full of sewerage and garbage – the flotsam and jetsam of the shanties and slums that sprawl either side of it’s banks. The physical reminder, lest one forget of the poverty and hardship of the millions that live here without proper housing, adequate sanitation and an income of less than $3.00 a day. In the gloaming one could be forgiven for believing this was some place else.
