I’m not allowed to blog about my going to try out the Google cardboard. Seeing a room full of Ghanaians, some of them young pupils, was nice. Africa is really catching up with the world.
Since leaving the desk job I’ve been freelancing and actively searching for interesting, impacting projects. I’ve come across quite a few as well so I would say it was a good idea that I quite my day job! I came across Booomers International a for-profit spin off of the Yonso Project. They make bike frames… Continue reading Trip to Royal Senchi
So the one thing you’ll probably know about Ghana is that directions are given to destinations by the use of very feeble landmarks i.e. the big mango tree, the lady who sells waakye. What happens if the mango tree is chopped down or the waakye lady starts selling kelewele or worse still leaves her spot… Continue reading Putting Ghana on the Map
So when I was working for a multinational digital media firm part of my job was to convince people to care about us, like us! I had to send out proposals and sometimes do pitches where I would (I won’t say lie) embellish the truth because the real truth just didn’t dazzle. I personally had… Continue reading Top Websites in Ghana
When I was living in Singapore I wrote a post: The life of a travelling student in websites I thought I would make a little update and see what my searches look like now that i’m a “young professional diaspora returnee” and just like the first list I mean if I type in just one… Continue reading The Life of a Young Diaspora Returnee in Websites
What’s really cool about being in Ghana is that there’s still space to make all the things people in the West consider commonplace. I came across Ahonya Bid through the network I’ve built out here and decided to give it a look. It’s like madbid.com and all those website that have crazy, in-your-face television ads. Obviously… Continue reading Ahonya Bid
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Childlike.”
I would say, as my time here approaches 2 years, that my biggest regret is not having seen the 10 regions in Ghana. Definitely I know I regret not having done all 16 ECOWAS nations but travel was thwarted when Ebola hit the sub-region. I wasn’t going to take the risk!
I had hoped to see the Western Region, by going to the Asabaako Festival but the person who said they would take me last year, let me down. I told him I wasn’t bothered. I lied. This year, me and the mates who were supposed to go simply stayed out really late, went to our various homes to catch 40 winks and simply overslept. It happens! I’m not too bothered by that one because we missed cos we were having a good time!
I’m a traveller, but it seems since moving to Ghana, I’ve got stuck. It may have something to do with Ghana’s accessibility to the rest of the world, or the fact that the culture of international holidays just doesn’t really exist here and so yeh I regret not travelling so much, and making my dream of seeing 25 countries by 25 even further from my reality. But on the other hand, there’s still time, however small it is… time to start making plans!
