From Suhum, Stanley called Sammy and got directions to the house in Accra. Finding it wasn’t easy. Because there was so much major road construction, Stanley was thrown off a bit. Some of the usual signs and landmarks were no longer there. We eventually found the place, but it would have been impossible without the cell phone and frequent calls.
When we were within a block of the house, Stanley called again, and Sammy sent their caretaker out on a bicycle to look for us and direct us to the house.
Sammy and Veronica greeted me with hugs, and I introduced Stanley. Stanley and the caretaker helped bring in the bags and the yams I had bought for my friends. I walked Stanley out to the Land Rover to say goodbye. I gave him a tip and an Obama tee shirt, shook his hand and he was on his way.
Although this is the end of the road trip, it’s not the end of the blog. There are more photos and events to share from the week I spent at Sammy and Veronica’s house in Accra.
