Mohamed El Bacha is a taxi driver in Essaouira, Morocco. His trusty companion: a Mercedes-Benz 240 D which is over 40 years old and, despite covering millions of kilometres, is still in service. Mohamed El Bacha and his Mercedes-Benz have been working together for 25 years day-in, day-out. In the past, they had to tackle sandy tracks and rough roads with loose surfaces, but nowadays most roads are paved. The pleasant driver doesn’t know the exact number of kilometres the vehicle has covered in total. The clock stopped working a few years ago.
