African resources



Leisure hours well spent - a round of snooker is fun!
We have an instant swimming pool atop Ali's pick-up truck
Nice hip-hop dance tunes but we need 
solar power, so four of us move on......
Wow, solid anti-collision measure - tough bumper, Boy!
The horses are strong, 3 of them! - the cabin coach is just too light.
Mmmmm......fairly clean looking toilet; 
you sure it's a flushing toilet?
 The game room is closed;
besides, we have no dime for that. 
So we designed our own.
It's okay we make good what we have, 
so long the water jet is powerful 
enough to water the plant.
So it's music you're listening from your ear-phone! 
Have you got one set on the other ear?

Many thanks to YC Lim for sharing.
