Things seen on a Boda Boda

THIS PICTURE HAS NOT BEEN DOCTORED. I GOT IT FROM MY FRIEND HERE.
YES, IT IS A GOAT! THOUGHT YOU ALL NEEDED A LAUGH TODAY!


I thought I needed to include this post for a laugh. You would never believe it but you have to take my word for it! A regular mode of transportation around here is the boda boda (a lightweight motorcycle) and a bicycle. Not only do these vehicles carry people but they carry anything that you might need transporting. Now I know some of you are not going to believe the things I write down here but I promise THEY ARE TRUE AND I HAVE SEEN THEM WITH MY OWN EYES!!!!

Things I've seen on a Boda Boda or Bicycle:
1. A full twin bed, not in pieces but fully put together
2. Approx. 20 foam mattresses
3. At least 40 Gerry Cans (these are 5 gallon cans they use to transport water in)
4. a family of 5 plus the driver
5. 2 huge bunches of matoke(plantain)with a woman
6. 1 75 lb. bag of coal
7. 2 large 20 gallon milk cans with owner
8. 2 100 lbs bags of potatoes
9. 4 large matoke bunches (these each probably weigh 50lbs)
10. 1 queen bed , in pieces but with headboard and footboard
11. An entire bedroom furniture set
12. 1 man and 2 small appliances
13. about 60 pineapples
14. 1 50lb bag of sugar
15. 50 huge stalks of sugar cane
16. About 75 crushed cardboard boxes
17. about 30 flats of fresh eggs=75 dozen eggs!
18. 30 live chickens tied together upside down awaiting to be sold and be dinner.

That is crazy & funny!!! Almost unbelievable, and yet the lives that some lead - are unbelievable. Things we just take for granted....
