Ian Utley of Culture Smart Ghana fame is at it again…throwing “boulders” this time he wrote to me. Ya see, he was standing by the side of the road in Accra and somebody yells from a passing tro tro “What do you want in Ghana? Go back to your country.” It’s the title of his […]

Like being pampered and being at […]
