Reading to Kids / Party at the High Commission / Trotro No Go

My second reading at the Kathy Knowles library went better, especially since I got the kids motivated by having them write their own text for the incomplete Tiger Dream. It always a learning experience for me as well, as I get to see a little bit into the minds of kids. Two young tourists dropped, donated some money, and Claire took my picture below. 
 At the Canadian High Commission in Accra, Canadians and their friends are invited to a party the first Thursday of every month. Lots of diplomats show up. Ben and Sulina who stay at the guest house with me are talking with Sulina's nursing students from Edmonton. They are on an exchange program and get hands on experience at the Accra hospital.

They ride an emotional roller coaster, delivering babies and having to watch other children die. Brilliant and brave, most of these young women are also planning to travel Africa before they head back to Canada for work. Below, two lane traffic often becomes four lane traffic. One trotro didn't make it.
