In Addis Ababa, cranky, 50-year-old Volkswagen Beetles enjoy a kind of life after death; their parts are never discarded but re-used to keep the city's remaining Beetles on the road.
Siyum Haile, 72, a retired United Nations (UN) employee and Jehovah's Witness, poses for a photograph next to his 1977 model Volkswagen Beetle car in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, September 16, 2017. Haile said that he had used the car for seventeen years because it's strong, consumes less fuel and most of all it's the only car he can afford to buy in Ethiopia. TIKSA NEGERI/REUTERS
