Notes From Ghana

The gentleman I sat next to on the flight from Atlanta to Accra, Ghana turned out to be a very interesting gentleman. He, like half of the passengers was continuing on to Abuja, Nigeria. I struck up a conversation with him while still parked at the gate since he was going to be my neighbor for the next 13 hours. He’s an older Muslim man maybe in his sixties. He was returning from Costa Rica on business. It seems he piloted international flights for some 17 years back in the 80’s and 90’s. Now he is charged with ensuring that his boss purchases quality planes. Back in Nigeria he has 3 wives, 14 children ranging in age from 14 to 34, and about 4 grandchildren under the age of 5. I was a little startled when he started praying to Allah in the seat next to me during the wee hours of the morning, but other than that he was a good neighbor.
