Funeral Procession Begins with Driverless Car

Ghost Riding Benin  While this is pretty tame and safe, I have seen cars speeding down the main road going at least 35 mph with the driver doing a handstand on the roof. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera at the moment. I have only seen this in relation to funeral processions.

Click on the link above to see a more safe and tame version. This was shot a couple of months ago when Jen and I passed the start of a funeral procession. We were standing at the biggest intersection in the middle of our town (though the paved main road is not visible in the background). Talking to some other Peace Corps volunteers, I found out that ghost riding is not just a local phenomenon but also done in the US, specifically in Oakland. Who knew?  There are some good local dance moves at about four minutes into the video.
