Taxis in Ghana often have slogans or Bible verses in their rear windows. I was intrigued by this one I saw on my evening walk. The driver was cleaning his taxi, so I stopped to talk to him. When asked why he put “shame” in his rear window, he said that a client stole something valuable out of his taxi. “The shame is for that person”, he said. I guess so. Here is a little selection of what I have seen in the rear windows of taxis.
These are really awesome! In many ways it seems like Ghana has a very different culture than what we experienced in Cote d’Ivoire. I’m enjoying these glimpses of it. One of these days I want to get back there to show my husband where I grew up…once things calm down enough.
We have lived in Cote d’Ivoire and so I can say that there are significant differences between Ghana and its neighbor. However, there are also lots of similarities.
