Okay, so it wasn’t a romantic trip, but it was lovely doing the Notebook thing with Tolu and his friends on his birthday. We cannoed on the river and then had a very yummy dinner.   

Bright and the lovely Sonya who has all the boys a-flutter 🙂

We glided to this tiny island that was full of birds,–those are the white flecks in the trees. Unfortunately, unlike the swans Noah found in The Notebook, the birds never let me get close enough to take great shots. Still, it was a beautiful sight, all those spotless white birds flying over the water and around us.



Interesting wall motif at the Golden Tulip

More of the Golden Tulip. Oh, what I wouldn't give for a swim now!!

                                             At night time, there’s nothing like dancing by the pool, under the moonlight while a live band plays. Of course I did that with my sister and a bunch of kids, but still, it was wonderful.


A few days after the graduation, I got to hang out with the “Shuwaa” boys. Don’t ask me what that word means, I couldn’t tell you. But that’s what Tolu and his three close friends in Ghana call themselves. Unfortunately, the fourth one is in the U.K., missing out on all the fun (Hi, Enoch) 🙂

There's nothing like Fufu and light soup with goat and fish!

Digging into his rice and chicken stew

Finger-sucking good, no metal to interfere with the yummy taste 🙂
