Ad of the day... seen in the Daily Graphic, Monday, April 2, 2007

Couldn't resist posting this ad I saw in the papers today. Here in Ghana these giant land snails are considered a delicacy among some tribes. It's not uncommon to see boys with plates of snails selling on the road side, or seeing them for sale in the markets.

I remember being on a KLM flight heading back to Holland when someone's snails escaped! We heard the flight attendant announcing " Will the person who has lost their snails please come and collect the from the front of the cabin". Seems as if there is money to be made though in snail rearing. Hmmm, second income? Maybe not.
