(Dear lovely Ghanaians, please correct me if I am wrong)
So for years now, I have been professing my love for Ghana. Like seriously, one would actually think I am hooked to a Ghanaian but that is not the case.
Now my obsession with Ghana began about six years or so ago and every time I have put it in my to do or more like to go list, I have always uhmmmmm skipped it for something else. Yes she is a busy lady.
Whenever, I see Ghanaians I always love talking to them and their accent to me is jest off de chain!! (just off the chain). I am sooooo much in like with their accent because it just makes me smile.
I met a Ghanaian on one of my days out with my friend and we were heading to the train station to catch the train
Anyway, a friend who stays in the city we went to visit (Shef.) was very kind when we met at one of the very wonderful pretty colourful building we visited. We had to do a fun task as a team and this person happened to be on our team #thingsyoudowhenyouareatouristandthepeopleyoumeet. It was snowing cat and dogs so we were offered a ride to the train station as we had no car with us that day. When we got in the car, my fab friend struck a conversation about Ghana and its people. The music playing in the warm car, I was freezing cold in my socks, was Ghanaian music and I was just amazed at how lovely the song was and although I did not understand a word of it, it was just so danceable. So while in the car, my friend was talking about Banku- I believe that's a Ghanaian delicacy and I tried describing it and my dear at some point I just had to shut up because I just could not describe it right.
So enroute , we had a little tour of S.field. We saw the S.field foot and all that, the weird looking roads and buses. Twas fun. Anyway, we had a little discussion about Ghanaians being very colourful, funny and united and we had a good laugh in a space of about 15 mins. My friend said she attended a Ghanaian party and it was full of laughter, colour and plenty FOOD!! Well I think Africans are known for that.
When we got to the train station and we said bye to our heaven sent angel (it was snowing heavily so the ride had to be from God ha!) We both said , that was nice and fun.
I kind of wish now that I asked who sang the song playing and had written the track title down. Looking back now I am kind of rolling my eyes at myself.
