This is right turn from our gate . Notice the open gutters, my greatest fear is falling or tripping into a gutter, I have managed to avoid that so far.
of Accra, Last week one of the guards at the Gate, Alice a young girl came and asked us if she and her sister could stay in our maids room in the back of the Garage. Of course we could not, mainly because it is a Mission Office and the room is full to the brim with missionary supplies. Alice told me that they were living in an unfinished house (many people start a house and then stop many times for years until they money to finish) so lots of people just live in unfinished houses all the times,not necessarily their house.So Alice and her sister were living with some other people in an unfinished house and the owners came and told them to leave because they were going to start building again. The problem is there is no housing for medium and working poor. But they are building for the upper class.
A little family lives here , it is right off the main road and they probably sell something during the day, but usually on weekday mornings they are all getting ready for school (4 kids) we always say hi to them and they are our friends, at least the kids are, they probably tell all their friends that they have white friends, that would be as interesting as having a friend with 6 fingers.
This road goes down to a dead end then a footwalk that we use as a short cut if we are late or in a hurry to start the day. It is a very nice Street, because it is a dead end hardly any traffic. Look at that razor wire, no one is going to jump that fence.
Fancy new apartment building across the way a Hotel!
This is one of my favorite houses on the dead end street, it is very nice and looks like maybe it was built by the British some years ago.
I will have to do a part two to a morning walk since my pictures are no longer downloading, it is a slow night on wifi.
