Moto Training

Motos are ridden by almost everyone here, but per Peace Corps policy us PCVs are sadly unable to ride them. However, there are a few exceptions to the rule, and since I need to get to somewhat distant surrounding villages to meet some of the borrowers in my micro-credit organization, I can get permission to ride on the back of my colleague’s moto. But before we can just hop on back at site, we got trained in Ouaga during a quick afternoon ride.

Since I’m not a small person it’s pretty comical for me to be riding behind generally small Burkinabe, but it still works. Check out a couple more photos from the training:

    Now you just need a leather jacket and some biker chaps.
