But Sir, WHY is the Puma smoking weed??!!!

5. There will be one guy who approaches you the moment you get to the market, will stick with you the entire time you’re there and then when you’re done, will ask you for money.

Listen. it’s not like I don’t appreciate the fact that you followed me around all day for some reason, but why are you disturbing me? Did I call you?

6. Those Hausa guys in long flowing Senegalese natives will ask you if you want to change dollars.

But all i’m carrying is a poly bag. Who brings dollars to the market to change IN A POLY BAG??! LOL

7. When you get home, you’ll find at least one ridiculously ugly shirt that will make you wonder just what the hell you were thinking when you decided to buy it.
