Oh, the luxury of it all

Limbe has garbage cans! Wow! Seriously, this is an exciting thing, to find not only a garbage can in both the room and bathroom at the Miramar (itself, a rare enough occurrence) but also public garbage cans outside on the grounds. Wonderful! Then, even more miraculous, a large garbage receptacle out on the street in town.

I really don’t make it a goal to produce so much refuse—quite the opposite—but after 8 months of not being able to find a place to throw out any small piece of garbage ever (e.g. a napkin, a Kleenex, a banana peel, a plastic bag that formerly held groundnuts), it’s wonderful to have a third option to littering or carrying it home with me.
