I went to the political rally for the president coming to Bassam. Actually I went once in the morning and then decided to go back later and try to take some pics and video. This is a little tricky and I knew I would have to try and conceal it. (I learned the hard way in Uganda about how you can into trouble taking pics of authorities.) So I walked with my phone as if I was talking and cautiously shot some video. This worked and then I tried a few more and eventually got cocky and actually started shooting regular style. Mistake. In a matter of seconds I heard a loud horn hock, a guy in a sharp blue suit yelling at the me to come to him and he was serious. "Oh no I am going to lose my phone for sure," I thought as I walked to him. Indeed, he was very serious and he made me delete some pictures. Here is a video of the scene.
