Our bags are packed, did last minute souvenir-shopping, started saying our goodbyes, and most of us are hanging out in the guesthouse while a couple folks are in Oasis one last time. In the morning we depart Cape Coast for Accra and then depart Accra Saturday night. This is the last blog post for the summer 2012 group.
One of my daughters asked me earlier to summarize the last six weeks in Ghana for a travel journal of hers. Somehow the activities such as the canopy walk, Busua Beach, Monkey Forest Reserve, and others seem like distant events already and pale in comparison to the significance of Ghanaians who have been part of our lives for the past several weeks. Each of us have bonded with individuals of all ages from different settings and situations: Natalia with Victoria and Richard, Liz with Abeva, James with Thomas, and so on. Ghanaians have been the most gracious hosts to our group and for that I am grateful. A special heartfelt thanks to the staff at Fairhill – Hannah, Francisca, Monica, Fosti, Thomas, Sammy, and Kojo – for taking care of us and for your kindness. Thank you Auntie Ann for your hospitality and a fantastic July 4th cookout yesterday!
