Gathering the day's essentials.
Dixie-Ann Dedier begins her day as the day begins.
The signal. Two for town.
The maxi-taxi journey is an opportunity for thinking and napping.
From City Gate, it’s a short walk on almost empty streets, past closed stores to the St James taxi stand.
Journey’s end. Dedier arrives at work.
After opening the office, it’s time for breakfast.
As the computer starts up, the working day begins, two and a half hours after leaving home.
On the ride into the city, Dedier is holding up but the taxi driver is feeling the weight of the day.
Walking back to City Gate, most of the shops are closed again, but vendors are still busy.
At the taxi-stand in City Gate, Dixie-Ann meets her brother Gerard.
“...put yourself in the midst of the throng...”
The last mile, alone after nightfall.
At day’s end, Dedier drops to her couch and turns on the television, 14 hours after stepping onto the street that morning.
