IT DOESN'T TAKE a lot of overhead to open up your stand to sell anything here in Africa. Their ways of trying businesses that are portable and needed amaze me. Selling meat pies, fruit or a Jamba Juice stand they are trying to bring home whatever they can. Many times we buy from them and bring items back and give them to the guards that are security for our apartment complex. One day we bought a whole stalk of plantains for less than $8, and the guards were all smiles when we handed it to them. It's in moments like this that its not about needing it, but they desperately do!
