Can’t resist the title of this post…to grab your attention…on the G.T.V. morning show the other day, they had an item entitled “HEALTH TIT BITS”. It featured a picture of a bunch of grapes and the text was about the nutritional benefits of grapefruit….hee hee……

Tidbit 1. Four Villages Inn had the pleasure and the honour to host the High Commissioner of India to Ghana Mrs Ruchi Ghanashyam during her official visit to Kumasi. On the first night of her stay, a large number of Indian nationals resident in Kumasi visited her here at the inn to enjoy a cup of tea with her.

Her comment in our guest book:

Tidbit 2. My oldest friend, Nana Amoako Agyeman, a.k.a. Rod McLaren of African Rainbow Resort, Busua, Western Region, Ghana.

Tidbit 3. It’s wonderful when a new book hot off the press lands in my hands. Caroline had just finished Isabel Allende’s latest ISLAND BENEATH THE SEA and passed it along to me. What a read! It’s an historical novel set in San Dominico in the later 1700s when slavery powered the sugar plantations.

Here’s what the Caroline wrote in our guest book:

“As soon as we arrived we felt we had found a little piece of heaven, and our one night stay turned into three! What a wonderful place with wonderful hosts. Thank you so much.

In August we hosted Lynn and Selwyn Ramsdale for nine days. Sel took a liking to our slingshot. The craftsman Lord Bright Appau came over on a Sunday afternoon with one for Sel. He left with a promise from madinghana to take pictures of his new products. Unfortunately, Lord Bright does not have a shop. He works out of a space in his house. What beautiful furniture and smaller pieces, like salad bowls, he makes.

Here’s what Lynn wrote in our guest book:

” Had an amazing stay in the Four Villages. Felt very comfortable. Chris and Charity are the best! We will be sorry to leave BUT: we will be back. Sel and Lynn Nottinghamshire, England. Miss Derbyshire 1966″
