Matatu Station at the Globe

The level of construction differs from spot to spot.

Context of the observation

There you see the official matatu station in the inner circle of the Globe. The station has a paved ground, shops and is very organized in contrast to the outer circle of the Globe. A lot of matatus stop there, but this day, the place is not too crowded.

1 Interpretation

At the moment it is not as crowded as usually, because of the fights with the riots. But as the matatus won‘t leave without passengers, at a certain time, the whole place will be stuck in traffic jam.
