It is not uncommon to see words misspelt in West Africa. Remember the Champion d’Afrique bike and the Timberland bag? Well, here’s another one:

It’s meant to say “Interdit d’uriner” which means “no peeing” (against the wall). I like the arrow, which runs along the wall, just in case you thought the message only applied directly below the writing. Mind you, that would mean I could wee to the left of the writing, where there’s no arrow, right?!?

Meanwhile, the ‘dark patches’ on the lower part of the wall are, I hope, due to dampness from the rain…
