We’ve got a new episode in the Archive – a topic that is always on our minds: driving in Burundi. Mostly, we mean Seth and Jeff who complain a lot about how motorists, police officers and pedestrians all collude to create some of the most chaotic situations in Burundi. But beside just feeling frustrated on an individual level (and providing snarky commentary), we recognize how people mistreat each other casually in the streets can illustrate how other kinds of relations can break down and lead to negative consequences. In other words, the environment can shape perceptions.
