dogs mess

Tracy, a tenant in Tenantspin, complained that "the dogs use the pavements as a toilet, and it has gotten worse lately." Mexico suggested that she "make sandboxes for the dogs with the right odor in them, put a sign up that says 'go here, not there' and go by every morning to collect the shit."

So, we did.

This was the most humiliating moment so far in the Ghana Think Tank. There was a group of guys in the park with a pitbull, and when they saw what we were building, immediately starting taunting us "Hey, you want my dog to shit on that?" When we responded that, "yes, please, that would be great," they softened up a bit, and started asking more questions, "Why are you doing this?"

And that's when it got really embarassing:

"You mean, you came all the way from America to build a bloody dog toilet!? What a waste of fucking


Saw this painted on the pavement nearby:
