WORKING IN DAR ES SALAAM
People in Dar es Salaam fine all kinds of ways to make a living. Some are educated and do well providing for their families. Others struggle, you will see them providing transportation for others. Each "Bjuj" or "pikipiki" is individually owned and they charge for transport. Some peddle products between vehicles waiting at intersections. They peddle everything from food items, clothing and even auto maintenance supplies. You can see them carrying the tables they use to display their products on their head until the find an open space to place their merchandise on the roadside for selling. This fellow has a ice cream business and he rides around the open market areas selling his ice cream. Many of the people work very hard.
