Hairdresser + Repair container
A hairdresser/mobile phone repair shop combo located in a township container that I ran across during a trip to Cape Town. Another form of informal repair place that reveal the diversity of such services. Chatting for few minutes with the (congolese) owner, it’s interesting to notice the common practices with Switzerland (e.g. type of problems encountered by customers) as well as the differences (e.g. how to access phone parts, tools used, etc.). South Africa isn’t the focus of our project but visiting this type of place offer relevant points of comparisons.
