Baba Shop

Everyday we drive or walk past this little shop beside the road and it makes us smile every time. This is a pretty common structure put up that Batswana men get their haircut at for 10 pula (about $1.50). Apparently someone spelled it as it sounded in English “Barber Shop” or “Baba Shop”.

Recently, Taylor and I had a date to get our haircut. This is very out of the norm as I normally trim her hair, but Taylor wanted to go quite a bit shorter so I was a little nervous to do it myself. And no we did not go to the local Baba Shop.

Below: This is one of our car washes that we visit that are set up along the side of the road. The big green tank is called a “JoJo” and is where they store recycled water they use to wash the cars.
