$1.20

We were lucky enough to have someone drive us around while we were in Accra.

 

The second day of the trip, he had to stop to get a couple quarts of transmission fluid added to the truck. To our amazement, this was how they did it.

 

This kid took the hose, inserted it into the container, and blew into the transmission fluid quart to get it to flow into the truck.

 

When he was done, he had a coating of transmission fluid all around his mouth.

 

I can't imagine how unhealthy that has to be.

 

And, he did it for the equivalent of $1.20 U.S. dollars.

 

What a tough way to make a living.
