August in Accra

AUGUST SAW US a little settled, though still not fully unpacked nor past the “storm of problems”, as a friend put it. Summer break is over, and the kids are back in school, so I had a little bit more time to conduct some “experiments” in the kitchen.

August also saw us having friends over the home for simple meals.

August 31 marks the Independence Day of both Malaysia and Ghana, 57 years ago.

Having gotten our living room back (after the repair of the air-condition piping), we were able to have friends over three days later on 10 Aug, as we farewell A and welcome Z.

Meanwhile more trouble brewing… another leaky pipe? This time outdoors, in the garden where a hole had to be dug. (11 Aug 2014).
