... I have to be working. At least that’s the case for the bus rides from Kyebi to Accra (or vice versa) which can be long and exhausting. After setting off from the bus station many passengers soon doze off and only wake up again when the road becomes particularly bumpy. Or when the inside temperature rises drastically due to a traffic jam. But since I’m not just an ordinary passenger but rather have to do my fieldwork, I’m supposed to be awake and attentive. For my job is to observe what goes on on the road and inside the vehicle, how bus drivers work and how passengers arrange their travelling routine, etc.. Anyway, it would be utopian to believe that Ghanaian minibuses offer the appropriate environment for taking a relaxing nap.
