Today is the first Saturday of the month, which means the monthly craft market at the Goethe Institute. Clothes, carvings, baskets, bagels, jewelry: perfect time to get some Christmas presents.
Afrisocks were back in stock, some new patterns but socks for women are not available yet. When traveling for the holidays, lightweight gifts like these are very handy. I love the colours!
Not from the Goethe market but from Global Mamas: a picture book I hope my niece in Ireland will enjoy, with great Ghana photos. Now I just need to see who gets what of Ghana chocolate, cocoa nibs, batik bags and local coffee.
Toys in local fabric. Lovely things, but it was hot and sticky (32C, and very humid) so we escaped to Cafe Kwae for a cold drink.
The “God is Able” food joint, in Cantonments. Next Friday is Farmer’s Day in Ghana and a public holiday, so we might go away for the weekend. Good to get most of the holiday shopping out of the way, and done locally. Now I just need to dig out my small bag of warm clothes and thermal underwear, and imagine how cold Norway will be in two week’s time. Brrrrr………..
