HEY MY CHERRIES 
This is your girl reporting from The Republic of Ghana.

I got to this beautiful country just yesterday and I have been blown away by the things I have seen thus far, my flight was smooth and short so my fun started immediately from the airport where I started clicking away my lenses so I don't miss any detail of the things that fascinated me.

Here are my views, enjoy;

PEOPLE
PHEW!....I finally found my roots (just kidding), I felt at home here especially because of my complexion I blended in very well, as I now understood why people often ask me if I was Ghanaian, I was finally in a place where being dark was not a taboo *rolling my eyes*.  Ghanaians are very warm and hospitable.

GIRLS
Omo! Come and see the heavy backside of these babes that got me steering and jealous as a chic, I pity the guys o, if you know what I mean.

GUYS
The guys are not too different from our naija guys but they move around in boxer shorts in the name of sagging (very irritating indeed, yack!)

ENVIRONMENT.
WOW! WOW!! The environment is so calm and neat and you can feel they are not in a hurry to do things unlike my naija peeps o, every thing seems so deliberate and organized.

CARS AND CABS
Cars are smaller in Ghana unlike their backside and I hear my naija brothers drive 80% of the big cars. They take their time to clean and maintain their cars especially the taxis, they look like they just came out of the show room, they pay special attention to their wheel covers and tyres *na wa o*

FASHION
Am yet to notice high fashion on their streets compared to Lagos where girls look like they just walked out of EBONY MAGAZINE. Their general out look is casual with bright colored clothes. Let me add that colored jelly sandals are so in for them.  

FOOD
Yeppy! I am so excited about this, the Ghanaians are so hot on grilled foods so am so loving this place o my dear, I have had grilled chicken and gizzard and I totally love it. I noticed they love good food as well because one is constantly harassed with the sight of fast food kiosks, the deliberate artistic display of food is eye catching, they also have good roadside advert. The most common food here is the benku, kenke and fish. I am yet to have a taste of it.

Let me add that I had Nigeria food here at "mama oluchi" I had fufu and bitter leave soup as I was scared of tasting the local delicacy just yet.

Display of food and fruits are done in an artistic and irresistible manner.

MAKEUP! MAKEUP!! MAKEUP!!!
Just like their dress sense they are yet to embrace good application techniques for make up but one thing caught my eyes, very obvious lip color I saw was in pink.

Pictures below, but the gist continues
Akwaba!!
Omon
