Woro Woro

woro woro is the yellow taxi.
It’s the collective one, goes on prefixed routes, claxoning all the time to attract passengers.
You pay among 150 and 250 CFA francs, not too much.
It is better than the orange taxi (the personal one), as you travel with other people and feel more inside the picture.
The other day the woro woro drivers organized a strike to protest against the police. Police (allegedly) take advantage of the check points and the verification of documentation to ask for money.

  1. Hello Paolo,

    I hope things are going well for you in The Ivory Coast. Here are my comments for your latest blog entry:

    It´s the collective one, which (or that) goes on prefixed (or pre-designated) routes, hooting its horn all the time to attract passengers.

    You pay between 150 and 250 CFA francs; not too much.

    …..feel more a part of things.

    Do you mean verification of documentation at the check points or check points and verification?
