Payphone in middle of a lake

Payphone in lake
A surprising number of people seem to think this photo is a fake. It is not fake. It shows a Ugandan fisherman using a solar powered GSM phone. Solar powered + GSM enabled = no wires.

In other words, it's a cell phone. Like any cell phone, it can be used virtually anywhere, even from top of a post in the middle of a lake.
