On my way back from drum lesson today, my taxi driver picked up another lady. She had come out of a bar. We drove around the block and stopped in a back alley. After some discussion, she paid and got out; this was evidently the location of her hotel. She seemed a little confused (and drunk).
As we were backing up, I chuckled. The driver said something about her not being right in the head (I’m guessing).
Then I asked him how much she paid. “1000,” he replied.
We got a good laugh out of that one.
(1000 CFA, or about $2.50, is a modest price for a taxi drive and would be enough to take you for 10-20km.)
