Street scenes

Below are some videos capturing the different environments we’ve experienced lately.  The first is a video of the sidewalk outside of Makola Market.  The second video is a scene from our drive from the rural community of Dzamam, where we are distributing bed nets, back to the town of Asesewa.  It is the first leg of a journey that involves four vehicles and four hours to get back to Accra.

The trip typically takes place in a very old, very rusty car such as the one pictured below. Cars only go by on this single road out into the rural area about once an hour;  people pile in them when they get the chance, cramming into the trunk or even propped on the front hood.   Given that it already takes me a few minutes to regain my balance after being tossed around inside the car during this journey, I have not ventured to its outside.
