A 30-mile traffic jam in Kenya

Since my son and his family relocated to Kenya about three months ago, I have been more than usually interested in the history of, and news from, the country.

So I was amazed to learn that more than 1,500 trucks are locked into a traffic jam stretching for 50 km (30 miles) on the highway between Mombasa and Nairobi. You can learn more here.

Next time, you’re delayed by a few minutes in a traffic jam, try to remember this story – and relax.
