Matatu. The Kenyan name for a mini-bus taxi.

Some are old. None are new. Some are red. Some are blue. Most are broken. Most drive fast. All think traffic laws are a thing of the past. Some blast hip hop or keep the radio on. Some prefer reggae versions of Celine Dion. Most are crowded. Most smell funny. And all have conductors who try to steal your money.

Not to be confused with a box of old crayons.
