This past weekend, Tim and Carole flew to Kumasi, Ghana's "second city," for Tim's job at Waste Enterprisers (6+ hours outside of Accra by bus, 35 minutes by plane). The weekend was full of waste sites, African markets and relaxation by the Bosumtwi Lake. This was our third time outside of Accra and, as always, a great opportunity to see a new part of the country and get some much-needed city-free time. 

From waste management site, to market, to R&R at the lake, we had a *unique* and splendid time. (One piece of advice: Don't stand downwind from the waste trucks unless you don't want to eat for days!)

Enjoy the photos!

Don't worry, Tim. Police poop smells like roses.

These photos! These photos are amazing. I especially like the sale of livestock from the top of the bus. Incredible.

Thank you! Especially proud of the woman with the two bowls (one on her head, one on her hand). That was a blind shot from the hip. We had no clue that any of those walk-and-blindly-snap photos would work out at all!

Lol. Really? No idea?! That's how I get away with taking a LOT of the photos I take! Just keep the button pressed down and delete the ones that look horrible! :)
