Random highway sighting

We were caught in a traffic jam the other day. This meat truck was in the other lane, and I couldn't help but notice the contrast between live meat and the non-live meat that was inside the box. (These red-striped white boxes are a common site in areas where the Maasai live. Since their main livelihood is cattle, meat is the natural by-product.)

Not to antagonize the vegetarians reading, but I had to mention that if you look really close at the rear panel near the tail-light, you can see blood drips. Yes, that happens in the process of making meat.

I love it.
When we were young, Mum and Dad took us to an African wedding. Instead of a cake the couple had a 'wedding goat'. It was nailed to a board, standing upright, and was carved thus.
Different cultures are great!

I guess it goes without saying that it is not a vehicle with onboard refrigeration... and thinking of the temperatures there, I think I'd be happily vegetarian.
