A man and a woman of advanced age, meet on a deserted road in the middle of red earthed barren landscape that marks a barrier of barbed wire. The man appears from the right side of the road, pedaling a bicycle with squeaky wheels. The woman appears from the other side of the barbed wire, meaning an open border. They will patiently wait for a bus that never comes. —Africulture
