This year, we're bringing a little American tradition to Ghana.
Despite not having found a turkey (in time and within our budget - $150 for a bird anyone?!), finding no pumpkin, and trying to survive the heat in November, we're putting together a Thanksgiving bash for a few friends, British and American alike.
We'll be grilling meat on our patio. A friend, who happens to be a chef from London, is making a pie using squash that apparently tastes similar to pumpkin. And we'll turn on our air conditioners to simulate the coldness of November in the U.S.
Things we're thankful for this year:
Carole recently got a job!
Tim has a job with a social enterprise in Ghana, and is getting first-hand work experience in the field.
We have friends to celebrate Thanksgiving with.
Wishing you a wonderful time with friends and family
