- Eat fried plantains and stew;
- Children play a game known as “ampe” (we’re not sure what that involves);
- Cleansing of the inner soul somehow;
- Bathe using a special leaf soaked in water overnight;
- Wear clothes with a white background.
We did take a trip to the beach in Accra (further afield from the human waste dumping grounds) to enjoy a birthday sunset dinner of grilled tilapia and local beer. It was a relaxing way to spend a birthday in a new country.
Bon anniversaire, Carole!
