Mr Google, on being asked "accra coffins tishoo", tells you that Teshie Nungua is the place. My map of Accra (a consistent liar) suggested it was about 6K east of the town centre. Easy.
The man drove a really long way through amazing traffic & roadside scenes. Maggie and I scanned the scenery for novelty coffins without joy. Eventually, we see a roadsign announcing "Teshie Nungua" - hurrah, this is now easy.
Some time later he gets the hang of what we are asking - he looks deeply sceptical but stops to ask a likely local. We now do this:
- Stop taxi, ask likely local
- Listen attentively
- Jump back in taxi & say "I have it" (or similar)
- Drive off fast (sometimes along the road we have just travelled)
- After N minutes, begin to look uncertain: return to step (1)
The driver returns, and says that if we give the man GC10, we can inspect the workshop and products. "But he will accept GC5", he adds.
Well worth all that we went through. Photographers are getting buried in cameras, school-bus drivers buried in buses, farmers buried in chickens (with hinged wings), ... big business. The owner said there were two or three companies in the game.
Next dinner party here will include the game "What do you want to be buried in?
