It was such a long trip. Delays States side as well as with my connection in England. Landing in Accra was not as magical as it was 6 years ago, maybe because of all the stress of travel, and my nervousness. I stepped off the plane into a cool but humid Ghanaian midnight, NOT the heatwave I was expecting. Drama continued as fed up Ghanaians did not want to deal with bureaucracy at the immigration desks (I’m not going into this) and after what seemed like a million rounds of the baggage turn, they finally loaded mine, and I picked them up. Locating Nii outside was not a problem. My first night, or rather morning, as it was officially after midnight, in Ghana involved going to various social hangouts to check out the scenes. Ghanaians are not playing! I felt I was in a mini music video with all the dresses (or lack thereof in the case of a few). Also went to the town where I will be staying. It’s so f-a-r!!!!! Now, we are contemplating going to “Watch Night” at 10pm. Apparently Christian Ghanaians do their New Year’s countdown in church. How did I not know?
