Ready for official business

Ready for official business

On board an Osu to 37 Trotro. While I was busily receiving a call on my Blackberry phone,I heard a phone ringing (fixed line style). To my amazement, the driver picked a vodafone branded placed phone on the dash board of his car, spoke into it and further made a call!!!

Don’t you just love trotro !!! Only in Ghana

I guess, just as they say, you must take your business serious. This trotro driver definitely takes his trotro as his office. As such there should be an official communication line and there you got it.

A Norwegian’s Trotro Experience

Inside TrotroOsu Trotro: 29.01. 11:26. Old Angry Lady (OAL) gets on trotro and immediately starts arguing with herself and everyone else. Wish I spoke twi, don’t understand anything but she is aaaaangry. Mate collects money from everyone, OAL refuses to pay! After some time mate tries again OAL is really mad, mate gives up.. (good tip if you are an old lady, just be angry and you can go for free:))

New Testament Lady (NTL) starts preaching, OAL starts talking louder. Confusion in the trotro as NTL has to stop.. NTL takes a break and then starts again, OAL also starts (screaming this time). At this time unfortunately I had to get off, anyone boarded this trotro and can give me the rest of the story?

Trotro Tourism

Hello diary, it has been a long time. Well now I have a new view, did you know that your everyday trotro ride is like being taken on a tour ride.

You see amazing things hehe. Ah, have the waakye sellers been put on single spine? Just saw 2 this morning, one was selling waakye sitting in an orthopedic swivel chair.

While the other waakye seller was busing tapping away on her electronic tablet, I wonder if she was downloading some waakye app or marketing her stuff.

Enjoy your day, keep smiling, keep shining!

Hot Man Driver

This driver is funny, I have never seen a driver this aggressive for money, u drive off almost hitting your mate and all u can do is say AH!!! U shd see the missile launching lips the mate made. See this mate he won’t come oo, when he drives off and u fall again, then u will come make your lips like.

This morning I had 4 special people that just made my day.

Inside a Trotro

First was the Driver and his mate who were so not synchronised, lol. On 2 occasions the driver drove off only to remember the mate was not on the trotro

The 3rd person was the dude seated by the door, even when we had gotten to the final destination, this guy wouldn’t get off because the mate (conductor has some change to give him) and as such we all couldn’t get off till he does haha

Last but not the least is the school boy who probably can be a stunt man at Hollywood. This guy was seriously holding on to the mate’s hand and the car as the car was moving just because the mate had to give him some little change hahaha.¬†What a way to start a day, the trotro way, very unique and amazing social connection moment. i hope you started yours on a good note too
