Cha-lleh! Why not?

22 Aug

Cape coast!

I visited the slave castles yesterday and after seeing the dungeons of the slaves of the past, the canons and ships that were left at cape coast, I could help but feel a sense helplessness about the past but wonder at what we have today. In Ghana, as I’ve noted before, there is no bitterness towards visitors but the reverse – just joy and welcome. They call you Cha-lleh, or Sister and brother, you’re part of the Ghanaian family just by being here.

Also, it seem they have a instinct to be game for absolutely anything! Their first response is almost always “Why not?” There usually isn’t an answer. What a way to live. 🙂
