Togo Produces - Tips

Hello Gary,

MOTO or Motorcycle Taxi:
I would buy a Moto, however I do not know how to get across borders. I think crossing border is more of a pain, then just riding on the back. Crossing borders of countries is difficult, getting a license plate in another country could take a month. However, to buy one is easy.

WHAT doe Togo Produce of Value: Of the top of my head, I would say nothing, maybe this nut called Koala, or something, they say the make Coca Cola with it, I know it is shipped from Togo to Ivory Coast. What is produced the most is charcoal, or they take wood and burn it and make charcoal. There are no factories here, in Ghana I think, for sure in Nigeria. I would say Togo is Eden. You can eat off a tree and never work, food grows too easy, and nobody needs anything. The clothing made here is not to wear, it is to use on Sunday to church or to get Married. A person making clothes a girl will earn 8 dollars per month. I have never seen a place so full of natural wealth as Africa, they seem to just live off the land. Their needs are met too easily, their wants are a portable phone, TV, beer, and maybe a motorcycle if rich. They buy or have to pay money to have a girl, girls trade sex and love for small gifts. Everything is small, every price is small, very few people every travel more than 50 miles. School cost and they work hard to pay for school. Eden, there is no need for hard work or diligent work. I see almost zero beggars, however with me, all people are beggars, they do not turn down a chance to ask for something for nothing. Being a bully is profitable here, as a angry bully and the people would just pay or give to shut them up. Amazing culture, I have never seen a country with less need or motivation for work. The land is to me like a flat Georgia or the USA, I think you can grow about anything you want, lots of water. Somewhere here they mine potassium.
