BREAKFAST




An excursion day Today we started early in the morning and around 9 am we were ready for our trip and sitting beneath the trees. But this time we were the ones who had to wait for the taxi. We started a bit later. While driving the Ghanaian participants were making music: singing, drumming, and clapping with two metall pieces, which look like rings. For me it was a little bit too loud for morning time, but there is one song I really like: „Tabea, Tabea, Tabea (Name) Wo ho ye me fe dodo. We ho ye me fe dodo. Ama, Tabea.“ „Translation from Twi to English: Tabea, Tabea, Tabea (Name) you are so beautiful to me, you are so beautiful to me. Saturday born girl, Tabea.“ Our first stop was the monkey forest in Baobeng Fiema. We were feeding the monkeys with peanuts and they came on our shoulders and hands. After driving for a while we arrived at Kintampo Waterfalls. A guide showed us the three waterfalls.The first two were quite small. But the last one was huge. Before we could walk down the stairs to the waterfall it started to rain. And if it is raining here, it is not just a few raindrops, it is raining so much, that after a few minutes it looked like the stairs were waterfalls too. As soon as the rain stopped, we were allowed to get into the river. About half of our group went in and we were climbing beneath the waterfall, using the stones as a slide and throwing muddy sand at each other. It was a lot of fun! After we walked back we had our lunchbreak at a big lawn, which looked quite like a German summer swimming pool. Some of us started playing volleyball and lots of peole who were around joined. Our last stop was at the slavery memorial in Manso. We walked to it: a big stone board at a huge Baobab tree that is about 200 years old. The vice chief told us that at this place the slaves were brought from the north to rest or get sold to the king of the place. After resting they were brought further to the south. As we finally arrived at the Permaculture Institute most of us were exhausted. For dinner we had rice balls with groundnutsoup with austermooshrooms.
So nice!
