this morning we got up early since we had a long drive from kamasi to elmina on the gold coast and we knew that there would be road construction and we wanted to arrive in time for some beach time. so at 6:45 we were seated for breakfast and ordered our omelets....we asked for cheese omelets instead of the usual spanish omlets (which often has carrots in them). we were the only people there for breakfast. well 45 minutes later our spanish omelets arrived and when we asked about our requested cheese omelets we were told by the waiter that cheese omelets wouldn't have been good??????? some we said okay ....sometimes in africa you need to smile and just say okay no problem and then asked for jam to have with our toast. when the orange marmalade arrived we requested the strawberry jam we had had yesterday and out came the empty jam jar and naturally there was nothing else available except the marmalade.
getting into Kumasi was awful traffic traffic and more traffic and all this on a sat. but when we finally arrived at our hotel we thought that perhaps the is quiet after all since the area of the hotel was green and quiet. this notion faded quickly as we went to its local market. The kejetia market is the largest outdoor market in west africa there are over 10,000 traders sprawling over a vast area covering more than a square mile. the market is a living thing there are surging throngs moving thru its labryrinthes
the noise is never ending. its overwhelming a prime example of daunting 3rd world urbanization. there was the covered meat market with every part of every imaginable animal some with hearts as big as small pigs there was even a section that sold every bone in an animals body. there was no light since that would attract flies and in fact there were no flies. people were carrying the carcasses of animals on their heads you had to step careful because in the meat market as in all of the market there were open drains and the ground was full of potholes. naturally i stepped in a drain and will have to disinfect my shoes socks and foot when we get back to the hotel. outside the meat market the same cuts of meat from filets to internal organs were smoked and dried and for sale. since kumasi is inland there was little fresh fish but lots and lots and lots of smoked and dried fish....want something fresh then try the snails that were as big as baseballs. then we went up a few flights of stairs to find hundreds of old fashioned sewing machines all going at once turning out the school uniforms that kids in ghana must wear and pay for. then into the section that recycles tires into sling shots ...used by building guards and shoes and sandels. our guide bought a sized pair of tire shoes for 3 dollars and guess what it said...made in china because the tire was marked made in china. as we moved thru the narrow lanes of the market you had to be alert to the stacked high with goods wagons that just barely made it thru the lanes move out of the way quickly or get hit and be careful where you step and what you step into and keep moving or get run over by the people behind you especially those carrying things on their heads. i have been looking for shoe laces to match an old pair of sneakers that she had bought years ago in france... in the market no problem after looking thru a huge pile of laces...just what you want 30 cents please. overwhelming but we couldn't get enough of it.
some random thoughts:
at dinner the restaurants place a bucket of water and a bottle of dish washing detergent on the table so you can wash your hands after dinner!
i had brought socks with me. neal, who does the laundry while we travel ( clothes in the bathroom sink and uses hand soap...he's a good house frau!) some how lost my socks...so bought a pair of socks in the market yesterday in the used clothes section...short dark green anklets for .20 cents! what a bargain.
sacred monkeys...a village devoted to the worship of monkeys once an american peace corp worker...we saw his house...told the village, in the 90's, not to kill the monkeys and cut down the land the monkeys use, but to make a tourist attraction out of the monkeys and thereby bring money to the village. we walked into the wet swampy tropical forest with bunches of bananas in our hands. finally monkeys appeared and we held up a banana. the monkey approached, looked into my eyes, peeled the banana awhile i held it for him and then proceeded to eat the banana, peeling as he ate. very cool. we did this many times with several members of this particular troop. it was a jane goodall moment!!!!!!!!!!!
we are staying at an upmarket...how they say upscale in ghana...hotel. the first hotel we tried had no hot water...though it was very cute. the second had n

Number of internally displaced people remains stable at 26 million
NEW YORK, United States, May 4 (UNHCR) – The number of people living in other parts of their homeland after fleeing conflict, generalized violence and human rights violations stood at 26 million last year, unchanged from 2007, according to the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).
A report by NRC’s Geneva-based Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, released during a ceremony in New York last Friday, also said that the 26 million internally displaced people (IDP) included 4.6 million newly displaced in 2008, up 900,000 from the previous year, and an equivalent number of returns.
"In the context of conflict prevention, forced displacement remains a major challenge, as does the protection of internally displaced persons," UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said at the launch of the report, which was presided over by NRC Secretary-General Elisabeth Rasmusson.
The report said the biggest new displacement last year came in the Philippines, where 600,000 people fled fighting between the government and armed groups in the southern region of Mindanao. There were also large-scale displacements of 200,000 people or more in nine other countries: Sudan, Kenya, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Colombia, Sri Lanka and India.
South and South-east Asia were the regions with the largest relative change in the number of IDPs last year, with a 13 percent increase from the end of 2007. The report noted that Africa was the most affected continent, with 11.6 million IDPs in 19 countries, though this figure was down nine percent on 2007.
The countries with the largest number of internally displaced were the Sudan (4.9 million), Colombia (up to 4.3 million) and Iraq (2.8 million).
"We all share the responsibility to assist and show our solidarity with the world’s IDPs," said Rasmusson. " Millions of IDPs are forced to survive in appalling conditions, in informal settlements alongside local communities, or hiding in urban slums or forests from the groups who displaced them."
The report said IDPs in 2008 were "exposed to a wide range of discrimination and human rights violations as a result of deliberate policies or neglect." It said that in 26 of 52 countries studied, the displaced continued to face attack and violence after moving. It highlighted the dangers faced by children, women, the elderly and ethnic minorities.
