A bowl of peanuts being one of the smallest possible mobile stalls – in front of the vendor, a kenyan woman

Context of the observation

This woman was sitting on a parking bench, not far from a roundabout, very close to the university. It was a busy street, especially as she picked a place to offer her snack which lied between the busy roundabout (with the inner central business distric on the other side) and an illegal matatau stop. The vivid colors she wore made her visible from far away. She was not allowed to sell anything there, but the bowl with the peanuts in it were the only thing she would have needed to pick up, if the police showed up.
