Samuel : ‘I’m coming from work and I’m going home now, to Plumstead.’ Henderson : ‘I’m going home also. To Capricorn. I’m coming from Plumstead. We just met each other on the road now! We’ve been friends for 2 years... we’re both from Malawi. We both rode bicycles in Malawi as well.’ Samuel : ‘We came to South Africa because Malawi has no work. Malawians like riding bicycles! And now I use the bicycle to go everywhere. I cycle to work in Hout Bay, Pinelands, Fishoek. All over we use our bicycles. I don’t like taxi’s because they always make us late!’
