West Africa Siesta Natitingou Benin West Africa Wednesday, September 27, 2006
There is a lull in the action; in fact, many stores close around noon until about four to five in the afternoon. Then around six to seven of sunsets, the crowd picks up.
This siesta though is the worst time to travel or to try to do anything, a good time to wash your clothes maybe, but not to travel.
MORNING TRAVEL It appears that to catch a cattle car properly a person needs to leave around 7:30 and all will be well for somewhere. I just get on a taxi or motorcycle and say the city I am going, the taxi figure out, he is going here, so I will take him to the quickest, common and easy way to travel to that city.
Now, to learn how to pronounce the names of these cities, hehehe. In Africa.
