Happy New Year Everyone:) I am sorry I am kind of late to make a new year post but please do understand that I AM IN AFRICA! EVERYTHING slower in Africa Anyway, I hope all of YOU the BEST in 2013 and I hope my photos from Africa so far make all of you smiles:)
As you all can see, I bought another NEW AFRICAN DRESS:). Yup, it’s my New Year dress from Ghana. What a beautiful country:) Lots of great beaches and lots of history. I suggest every American should go there so they understand a lot more about Slave culture. But don’t worry, I will show you all in my upcoming posts:) I Spent my new year eve at a beautiful beach front resort around Cape Coast. There’s a castle and fishermen village nearby and it’s amazing to stay over there.
At around midnight, we all launched big lanterns to the sky and watched them flew away:)
This is my first time to launch a lantern with a group of people to celebrate new year. To me, it’s so special:)
After that, there’s a huge, I mean HUGE fireworks:) Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos at all and the photos from above are NOT even took by me since my camera was locked at the owner’s room:) I am very thankful to get all these photos from my friend:P but I am always a lucky girl…..really. I always bump into GREAT people-like the worker-Mabel and the Owner of the resort-Susan.
When I arrived the resort, there’s NO ROOM available because it’s new year time and everywhere was FULL! When Mabel found out I needed a room, she graciously offered me her room that was inside the owner’s house:) I got a chance to share a house with the owner and Mabel and they didn’t charge me a penny for that!!!!!!! Well, to show my appreciation I bought a lot of stuff from the resort and be generous on Tips. BUT still, I can’t compare to their generosity at all At night, we drink and dance and drink and dance:P
So, if you guys ever interested in staying in a beach resort in Cape Coast, Ghana…drop me a line and I will give you all the information. Happy new year everyone:)
