Vehicles don't last long round here - a new 4x4 can be ground into the dust in only a few years. There are a handful of old Land Rovers which have been patched up enough to be used as local run-abouts, and then there are the Bedford trucks. These trucks carry a full load of oil drums - full of gasoline - on the road between Georgetown and Lethem and then from Lethem into the mountains, into the forest, over the savannah. They carry on where the roads stop and pretty much keep the interior of Guyana running. I've no idea how long this one has been going - but there is a chance that it will be still running when the driver's son is big enough to reach the pedals, and old enough to drive it.
