To say that travel in Monrovia is an adventure is quite the understatement! Traffic, potholes – some the size of a small car, no road at all, 2 lanes that are turned into 6, 7 or even 8 lanes of traffic, people everywhere, hawkers selling their products while playing frogger in the traffic, and… well, surely you get the picture. Or maybe you don’t.
Yes, that is a coffin in that small car! Someone is being taken to their final resting place – no ropes, no tie-downs – just sitting there, hanging out.
If you think I was surprised to see this, you are mistaken. The first time I saw a car with a coffin in it I was surprised. Not any longer – I have sort of grown accustomed to the site. In town, up country, on the highway, in the bush – I have seen this many times.
You just never know what you will see!
