Wo ist mein Transit van?

It's in Lagos.
Ok, you'll have to trust I'm telling the truth, as there's nothing in the picture that suggests the van is anywhere other in its native Hamburg, but that's where I took the picture.
A lot of the second hand cars and lorries you see around in Africa and the Middle East still have the names and logos of their original owners on them. I found myself doing a doubletake the other day, wondering why a lorry apparently belonging to a German pig farmer from Westphalia was driving around the outskirts of Dubai.
