In Accra, we disembarked via stairs, so after 30 hou rs inside vehicles or buildings, the effect of the weather and smells was powerful. The humidity was about 90 %; the smell I recognized from 50 years ago when all the houses in mgy neighborhood were heated by coal. Here, coal is used widely for cooking fires. The effect of the smell was disorienting (that and sleep deprivation!)
Thursday, up at 6 AM to leave at 7 AM for a two and a half hour van ride to Cape Coast. The rest is mostly a fog; slept off and on for the rest of the day.
The world looks quite different here:
|Hands-free carrying technique.|
|Restaurant (and Chelsea FC supporter! Look closely at the taxi.)|
|And art is valued in spite of other needs.|
