Once we arrived the bus driver gave passengers head bands with torches attached and told everyone to be back by 11:30am.

Nothing is wasted here and it’s something we could learn a lot from. The ladies selling these deep fried delicacies pick them up from the fresh meat market – the fat is given freely the offal at minimal price.
