One fruit Nalerigu has plenty of is watermelon!
I’m always curious about what foods the street vendors in town are selling. One day when Heidi and I were walking back from market we saw a lady frying what looked like tofu. Turns out it was cheese – though it looked and felt just like tofu. We bought a bag full of the treats […]

I gave you a look at the artistic genius that is my breakfast every morning. Unfortunately Heidi gets the opposite. She eats some generic Ghanaian corn flakes every day and has to stare at a box featuring the Comic Sans font. No breakfast of champions would write the word “champion” in Comic Sans. For those […]
