In Africa you don’t need to lack anything, it’s just that the standards are a bit different. On that note, if you love going to the movies like I do, feel free to go to the local cinema. Current movies are Bruce Lee, Bruce Lee and Bruce Lee from the year… well, rather from an era where time has forgotten.
Another form of cheap transportation is the bus of course. If you lack excitement in your life, definitely take the bus. Buy a coke, take your iPod and experience a whole lot of shakin’ going on.
Always make sure your vehicle is road worthy. Now don’t worry, the standard isn’t that high, however every now and then you’ll get stopped by police to check whether you have the permissions to drive on that particular road and that your vehicle is not yet literally falling apart. They are friendly people just doing there job and swinging an AK47 around their neck for worst case scenario.
Favorite thing: Should you require Internet Access, I have been told that this is where you get it. Don’t ask me how to get there though, but a local will be most willing to direct you – for US$ 10 perhaps.
Favorite thing: If you need cash, this is the best bank. There is also an ATM machine and I was able to withdraw money with my Mastercard.
