6 years ago67 views

More than three months after Haitis devastating earthquake, getting around the country remains a tough challenge.

Only three per cent of Haitians own cars, so one of the only alternatives to walking is to ride on cheap buses known as "tap taps".

Images ranging from US rappers to Jesus Christ are hand-painted on these vibrant and colourful buses, which are decorated to attract more customers.

Haitian "tap tap" drivers say the colourful buses are also a way to escape daily realities in the struggling country.

Al Jazeeras Sebastian Walkers reports from Port-au-Prince.
