Picked up my Guatemalan friend on the way back from work today and she told me that when she needed to re-new her expired driving licence in Guatemala earlier this month, they asked her straight over the phone: "If you do the driving test it will cost 250 quetzalas, and if you dont want to do the driving test its 650 quetzalas". Nice business model, selling expensive licences to those who cant/wont drive...

The picture is from a job earlier on today, where this guy lives in a flat with serious dust pollution. It has lead to his severe asthma, and the council is doing jack shit about it. (ps. I didnt ask him to write DUST, he just did it while I was shooting)
