Maili Tisa, nine miles from Eldoret

It's so common for people to look over a shoulder,
and read someone else's newspaper.

'Maili Tisa' means 'nine miles'. This particular junction, on the Uganda Highway, is nine miles from Eldoret on the way to Kitale. Because many long-distance trucks (lorries) use this road, this junction has become a truck-stop of sorts. I frequent this junction on my travels, and one day recently had the opportunity to snap a few photos.

I have no idea why these guys choose to hang out on a small 'island'
smack-dab in the middle of the highway?
