Top Ten Questions Answered

Some of you might like a few more details about our move, so below are answers to the top ten things we've been asked:
  1. We are all going - Dave, me, Joshua (3 1/2 yrs old), and our 2 dogs.
  2. We are not selling our house. My folks want to use it as a second home because it is close to my brother and all of the Denver fun.
  3. We will live in a small expat community about 10 miles outside of the small village of Bogoso.
  4. Ghana is an English speaking country. There are many other prevalent languages, Twi being the main one.
  5. The weather is hot and hotter. Bogoso is in the middle of a rain Forrest so while the temps always range around 88, the rains come most everyday.
  6. The country is on GMT (or Ghana Maybe Time) and puts the time change 6 - 7 hours ahead of Colorado depending on daylight savings time.
  7. Dave has traveled there many times and I went with him once.
  8. Our favorite thing about Ghana is currently the Ghanaians. As a whole, they are fabulously friendly, welcoming, and easy to be around. We also really enjoy the expats and Dave's coworkers whom we've met in the community.
  9. The thing I look forward to the least is the traffic getting into and out of Accra and the 6 - 8 hours of off-road trekking to our home.
  10. Yes, we will miss you all terribly and hope to see everyone during our month-long breaks 2 times a year. We hope our first trip back will be at Christmas.
