And I saw a naked Ghanaian man!

9 11 2009

Well it happened… of course not in any of the circumstances a woman would normally expect it to happen… but it happened.

Saturday evening… 8 pm. William and I were returning from Cape Coast where we had a really lovely day. We went to Kakum National Park, we took the canopy walk, 40 ft above the ground, we ate lunch on the beach and enjoyed the sun… it was a perfect day.

Coming back to Accra, the tro tro left us close to Circle. While we were negotiating with a taxi driver to take William home I saw this man approaching us and trying to have a conversation… He was naked… Just to be sure that I am not delusional I asked William if there is a naked man trying to have a conversation with us, in the center of Accra, close to a taxi station… No, I am not crazy yet! The man was completely naked and seemed very comfortable in that situation… And when I thought I’ve seen it all! I mean… I got used with men peeing on the side of the road but naked man taking walks in the middle of the city… I must confess I haven’t seen this coming!

Unfortunately the taxi driver chased him away so I never had the chance to actually have a real conversation with a naked man, in the center of Accra, at 8 pm in the evening. What a pity! It would have been interesting to see what he had to say… Maybe preaching about something… I have seen many preachers in this country, and usually in tro tro’s and tro tro stations, so a taxi station is a perfect place… Anyway, I took a taxi home thinking all the time that life here is a real adventure… every single day…

I don’t think I will ever forget my experience here! I will always remember it as the funniest and craziest period of my life…

Cheers to Accra and this amazing adventure I am having 🙂

Me happy!

PS: I saw Julie and Julia this weekend. Great movie 🙂 and Accra Mall was the perfect place to see it. And I even had Latte and coconut doughnut for my name day 🙂 I didn’t on my birthday but I guess it’s useless to plan ahead here 🙂

PPS: It’s amazing how good is the melon and the watermelon in November 🙂 It compensates pretty great for the lack of snow 😛 And the mango season is back again 😀 I was afraid I will miss it 😛 Cheers again for life in Accra 😀
