- Weave - Probably 75% of the people here are walking around with weave. This really surprised me. I'm assuming it must be pretty cheap to buy because poverty is real over here. I've been trying to figure out how to sneak a picture because it is installed in a very interesting way. Some people have tracks but for most it is different. At the root, it looks almost like palm rolled dreads. So...I think...the natural hair is palm rolled and then the weave is somehow glued onto that. I know I didn't describe it right but I'll get a pic one day. Just know there's a lot of weave and most of it looks a mess.
- So, these people hook a trailer up to the back of a motor bike and make it into a taxi. I haven't been able to get a good pic so this will have to do. I have seen like 15 people hanging onto the back. Crazy...dangerous.
- Women walking around with stuff on their heads. Now, I know this isn't something that I didn't expect but I have been surprised by the type of things on their heads. I've seen chairs, small trees, huge boxes. I'm always amazed by this. Usually though, it's more like these.
- The traffic! This traffic is horrible...worse than anything I've seen. Example...Dwayne's job is about 11 miles from our house. He has to leave at 5:20 in the morning to get there about 6:15. If he leaves any later, it can take him 2 hours or more to get there. His commute in the evening is about 1.5 hours. He leaves work at 4:30 and usually gets here around 6 (sometimes later). I've been trying to figure out the traffic rules. There are very few lights or stop signs but also very few accidents. I guess the people aren't too aggressive and just fit in however they can.
I know there are more things but this is all I can think of for now. I'll write later.
