The Amazing Race Goes to Ghana

Do you like to watch The Amazing Race on TV? Well, if you were watching it last night, then you got to see a little bit of Accra, Ghana—the city where Alan and I lived last year. It was very neat to see some old sights, although a little frustrating to hear the announcer and some contestants mispronounce nearly everything from the names of the markets to the pronunciation of the currency. Oh well. The contestants sold sunglasses at Makola Market and transported the fancy coffins made to represent the life of its inhabitant. They also showed glimpses of well-known places like Independence Square, the Presidential Palace, and Kaneshie Market. I look forward to seeing a few of these old sights myself in a little over a week.
