Ghana Photo of the day

We encountered quite a few signs like this on our 5 hour Sunday drive back to Accra from Axim this weekend. Could never find out why (there was a shortage)... but it happens from time to time. Ignorance is bliss for me when it comes to matters like this anyway.

At least they were polite about it...



And inside the shop they had warm coke (power was off), and melting chocolates for the drive! :)

Thank you for stopping by my humble little blog!

You really are a long way from home. I can't imagine doing that. I'm going to have to follow your blog to find out what it is like.

Margo said...

it's so nice to meet you , Holli! I look forward to getting to know more about you and your fascinating life through your blog. thank you so much for visiting mine! Having lived in several different countries - nothing quite as exotic as ghana- my first reaction is one of both empathy and envy :)

Silke said...

I am so glad you found my blog, Holli, and led me back to yours! What an interesting life you have! Can't wait to follow it along on your blog... I have a very close childhood friend in Germany, who was married to a singer from Ghana and who used to show me lots of pictures from their travels there. Such a fascinating and beautiful country! Hugs, Silke

What a truly interesting blog. Loved my visit. Will definitely call in again. And as Margo said, 'I have both empathy and envy for you'.

Thank you also for taking the time to read my blog. Look forward to hearing more about your fascinating journey through Ghana.

Hi Wendy, Silke, Margo and Chad - THANKS so much for visiting and for your kind comments.

I'll keep rambling about Ghana and of course reading on your sites as well!!!

We were in fear of this happening in the States last summer. Numerous gas stations ran out of gas.

The pale observer said...

In Ghana there's no fear.. just shrugs. Lots of the time no power, no water... we take it all in stride. It's too hot to get upset!

But actually it's quite mild this season for a change. Ater being here for so long 24 celcius is cold! :)

I thought the sign read, Please no flu (at first) - guess you can see what's on our minds these days. But what a beautiful hand written and polite too.

Rahul said...

thank you Holli for passing by my blog...
your blog is quite absorbing and appealing. Looks like you are enjoying your sojourn in Ghana.

Turquoise Diaries said...

I like seeing Ghana thru your eyes.. and yes, they are definitely polite

The pale observer said...

@Jan - yes, the swine flu is big news everywhere. Even cases being reported in Ghana now. My hubby has a flu right now (after meeting with a business associate who had just returned from the UK and his whole family had confirmed H1N1...). We're hoping whichever flu it is, it passes quickly!!!

@Rahul and TD - thanks for the comments - Ghana is definitely not boring... more to follow.

Hmmm, warm coke? Melting chocolate? dang I love my ice! I suppose I could ride my bike though and live without gas. :)

Fantastic Blog. I'm looking forward to following.

The pale observer said...

@lisa - bike riding is unfortunately a dangerous endeavour in Ghana. With the potholes and mad tro tro (public van) drivers... it's like a high risk sport! :)

@Dad - thanks!! Ditto.

I love the signs in Ghana, so many of them are inadvertently funny!

Gayle Pescud said...

The funny signs are great. Yay Axim! Up here in Bolga there are virtually none. It's all straight to the point. Interesting.
