A cab driver by night, she tours the streets of BeirutMuch like her own life, Yola's taxi is dependable despite the knocks and bumps denting the car. Yola isn't an exception. With her passenger window rolled down, she honks and shouts "taxi" to anyone who might need a ride. Like so many drivers in Beirut, she also struggles to find enough fares, estimating that only one out of every hundred people she approaches ends up getting into the car.Before stopping at a shop to pick up beer and cigarettes, she admitted that she never envisioned driving a cab until the death of her husband four years ago. After dropping off a man in Sin al-Fil, she alleged that she doesn't think about the dangers that a female cab driver might encounter in Beirut.
