I took this picture in the midst of traffic jam in the outskirts of Lima. In the picture you can see that an informal taxi driver went against the traffic, blocking the way for all cars, including this huge truck that is beside me.
With 9 million inhabitants, Lima is the biggest metropolis on the Pacific coast of South America, and has a very precarious road infrastructure and a chaotic transport system. Now in Lima, jams are more frequent than before because of the increasing number of cars.
