Five hours is a long time for little legs to be standing up, especially as during the last three, the mercury has been steadily climbing into the high thirties.

Confidence and curiosity now get the better of this little boy and he points to the camera in my hand, and then looks towards me. It’s hard to refuse his now cheeky grin, and so I oblige him by taking out my camera and together we proceed to take close up pictures of my driver’s legs and feet to the amusement of the onlookers around us.A week-long independence referendum is underway, for nearly four million registered voters.
