Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

Posted on Updated on

Okay, this week’s photo challenge is Signs. I hesitated, but as I was going over photos I took recently in Cameroon, I came across this sign for a restaurant I stopped at after visiting the tourist village, Ebogo. Yes, by the way, the sign is accurate – they had serpent on the menu; boa to be exact.

They actually had snake on the menu - freshly killed and cooked.

And, there’s this banner from the Unity Day Parade the day before in Yaounde. I wonder if they realize the implications of this sign? There were dozens of slogans – typical of autocratic, regimented societies, and this is one – but, this one really caught my eye.

Signs, like religious commandments, point out things people are doing wrong. I wonder if the parade organizers realized this.

Finally, I couldn’t resist this sign – it’s a Francophone country, but they’ve coined this ‘English’ word – ‘Blackitude.’

 

A combination of French and English that is, to an outsider like me, somewhat hilarious.

    I’d probably try BOA… at least once anyway 😉 BTW, I’m still following your blog, I’ve just added it to my RSS-reader rather than following in WordPress. Have a good week!
