Business is often done on the streets under the clear blue sky.

And one way to do it if you don't have a shop or the money to rent a shop is to get a container. They are placed all over the township, used as offices, telephone boots sometimes even as houses.

The"  taxi rank" is the place where you have to wait to get a taxi to go to  "town" meaning the city center of East London which is approximately half an hours drive.Umbrellas in bright colors shelter against the sun.

And this is the place as well to get " AIRTIME " for prepaid cellphones.

The Ethembeni Old Age Home makes no exception in this regard. The office is a container that was donated to them.

The office from the back side.

And the inside. The Ngo is managed from this space.
