    Hi Dana,

    I really enjoyed reading this article. There is not much insight into the culture, daily life and atmosphere of Winneba. My father lives in the area and I am yet to visit from Australia.

    I would love to follow your journey on what will be nothing short more of unusual westernized fads, your volunteer contribution and everything else that comes in between!

    Hi Dana,

    We met awhile back at the beach- I’m the one from Atlanta that’s working at UEW. Lydia shared this link and it popped up on my feed.

    I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your post. I am also a runner and run 3-4 times a week in the area. I purposefully avoid main roads because of the attention I bring and stick to the dirt backroads- makes me feel like I’m trail running. While at first I was a spectacle when I ran by, now it’s normal and I’ve forged relationships with people on my route. Even though they are short exchanges- I try to practice my Fante- I appreciate them very much and they’ve become very important to me. I run at 7am as many children are on the way to school- their smiles and “good mornings” make my day.

    When I do deviate from my 3 set routes and venture out to the main road, I often get asked “where’s your friend?” I think they are referring to you and your running partner!

    Run on!
