So, driving up to the Upper East Region of Ghana, I realised that I’m still very much the babbler. And when I babble, I come up with some pretty random topics. Here’s some of the stuff that I came up with during conversation while on the road;
1. In the aftermath of the events of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, do Algerians drive through Togo?
2. Reasons why one should not build a log cabin in Ghana:
a) Termites will have a field day, regardless of the treatment methods you employ
b) You’ll be an easy target for estranged family. All they’ll need is some kerosene and a lighter/match and you’re toast.
c) Dogs will forever be marking their territory on your house
d) Shoddy Ghanaian electrical systems plus a log cabin = bad idea
e) Who you gonna call to build your log cabin in Ghana? Do you call a carpenter, get an artisan from the art centre to carve one up for you?….
3. No matter how things have changed, there’s no way that a grown man will/can accept a “small girl” being in charge of any project coordination, let alone controlling the money associated with it.
4. I love cheese, books and things on TV, in no particular order.
5. Christians are quite possibly the biggest hypocrites there are out there. We claim to be like Christ, but are nothing like the Son of God. How do we profess love, and yet turn out to be the strongest “haters”?
