Seeing as the road ahead was lit up like a dodgy rave by all the police lights I assumed I had just driven into a massive roadblock... or a freaking amazing street party...
Dont Panic You're Not Drunk...OK...Maybe Panic Just a Little You Dont Have Your Drivers With You!!
Turns out the entire hold up was due to a big accident which involved a helicopter landing in the middle of the street...hoping someone got a pic of that!
There was at least a bit of entertainment , everyone that knows that road should by now have noticed that there is a MASSIVE ditch in the middle island between the roads making U-turns a seriously questionable task if you don't own a 4x4...which of course didn't stop the VW Polo in front of me attempting it nearly taking off her front bumper in the process! In a truly African scene the next vehicle to attempt crossing the ditch was of course...a fully loaded Taxi... no surprise...it got horribly stuck...soon as the dust had settled...far too many occupants climbed out...and then in a wonderful display of teamwork they simply pushed the taxi to where it needed to be!
Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh
