October 8, 2010: Stanley and I hopped into Phillipe “Doedoe” Bouge’s tap-tap at the Canape Vert station in Petionville. We drove with him up and down his route while he told us about the life of a tap-tap driver. He is a young man, very sad about the prospects for his future.

8 octobre, 2010: Stanley et moi sommes montés dans le tap-tap de Phillipe “Doedoe” Bouge à la station de Canapé Vert, à Pétionville. Nous nous sommes assis avec lui alors qu’il conduisait. Il nous racontait sa vie de chauffeur de tap-tap. C’est un jeune homme désespéré quant à l’avenir.
