Africa: Where do old American school buses go to die?

The Congo, of course.

For only $2,000, one of these sturdy yellow American beasts (preferred over European models) can be put to use hauling fish, cassava and dozens and dozens of people over the rocky roads of Africa. Fun fact: Many of these "pre-owned" vehicles come from Virginia or Maryland.

"This bus is all about speed. Pedestrians are used to it. They know how to get out of the way."
