Ski racks in Africa

A car in Africa has not the same purpose as in Europe. It doesn’t matter how mutch fuel it needs or how high it’s CO2 emissions are. But its very important, how many seats a car has or how reliable it is. The cameroonian decorate their cars like christmas trees. After a few days we discover strange things on their roofs. Walter, our expert, told us, that they are ski racks from european cars which were exportet to africa. To have one is a status symbol and a must have for every taxidriver. Even a new industry grew in Nigeria. A factory produces cheap copies and the taxi drivers decorate their cars with them. Absolutely gorgeous!
