Learning to dance in Kumasi

wow. this is an old photo. i am so glad that i’ve managed to save it on t’internet otherwise when my hardrive died, it would have gone with it. anyway, this was taken when i was 17 and in Ghana.

we went as a group of school students on a trip to establish connections with a school in ghana. It was partly in memorial for a son of two teachers who had arranged the whole trip. had intended to go to ghana during his gap year, but died quite unexpectedly whilst running. as part of a memorial they established ties with a school in ghana to increase contacts and teacher training.

it was a really good trip and we learnt a lot. not least that as westeners we are particularly lucky.

i’m sure i’ll post again at some point today.
