Conversations with a Taxi driver from Djibouti

Driver: I’ve got a story for you sister, one you’ll probably like. A white man caught my taxi and welcomed me to Australia. I told him, ‘you can’t welcome me here, it belongs to the Indigenous people’. He got mad and told me I was lucky to be in Australia. I told him that it wasn’t luck but that our countries have an agreement that enables travel between the two.

Me: Snap [laughs]

Driver: [laughs] I thought you’d appreciate that.
