With Mount Kilimanjaro rising in the background, this photograph demonstrates the demand for fuel oil even in remote rural settings. The small sign on the tree advertises the “Petrol Station Kindi,” a small shack with two large barrels behind the tree. The man on the bike with his bag full of market or farm goods highlights the small scale of this petrol enterprise.
