Joshua at a Bogoso barbershop.
Jennifer honored me with a meeting with her dad. It was no surprise that he is a very joyful man. Jennifer is his youngest child and only daughter. I told him he has done a very good job indeed and he told me to take good care of her.
Yesterday, Joshua, the dogs and I tagged along on a business trip to another of the company's mining communities called Wassa. Traveling so soon after Accra seemed a bit crazy but our house was scheduled for a quarterly bug spray and we needed to leave for at least 2 hours after the spray. (Once the compound they use is dry, it is perfectly safe.) To Wassa, it was about a 2 hour drive on a dirt road through the jungle. It was a beautiful drive other than suffering through bumps. This time I took Dramamine so I wouldn't have to deal with getting car sick. It worked for me but not our dog, Tate. Poor guy was miserable on the way there (he was fine coming home).
Dave worked all day and the rest of us were left to explore the community on our own .
