Cecil B. DeMille She Ain’t

It’s rained a bit before I woke up this morning, and the day is still dreary.  My to-do list is getting shorter, but I have still a few more things for today, and I think I forgot to put nap on my list.

Yesterday I forgot it was my day off so I’m taking one today. I am going to leave you with a few videos, poor ones I know, but I was using my small camera and shooting snippets.  The first two were taken during the swearing-in ceremony. One shows the trainees doing a Ghanaian dance and the other is of the teachers of the deaf signing.

These next two were on the road to Tamale where we ran into a couple of storms.

These were taken as we drove through Accra.

These are two excerpts from that Nigerian soap opera I watched a few afternoons.

This is that first rain storm in Bolga. I was under the overhang by my room.

This last one of of the wonderful old man who took us around what was really a small museum. He played this song in the birthing hut.

    I loved to go through Accra! The sounds was just as I had imagined them and I could almost feel the smells! I also loved the sound of the rain hitting those tin roofs 🙂

    Have a great day!

      Those two short videos gave you a perfect idea of the crowds and the noises of Accra. I loved going back to hear them again.

      That was an awesome storm!

    Hi Kat,
    Love the old man. 🙂

    Love the sound of the rain.

    Soap operas are the same everywhere. 🙂 Except for the Spanish language one about vampires. That one was a bit different.

      Hi Caryn,
      I loved the old man as well, and you know how I felt about that first rain storm.

      I wish I had more of that soap as it is so dramatic I laughed all the time at their moeaning and facial expressions.

    I couldn’t get the last one to load. But WOW on the others. I also love what that black guy is wearing to the ceremony. He is obviously important or he wouldn’t be up on the stage. I would have bought one of those ?? if I were there. Have a great day off!

      I’m sorry about the last one as the man is wonderful to hear. The guy is wearing traditional dress topped with a kente from Peace Corps celebrating 50 years. He is actually a staff member of PC Ghana which is why he is on the stage. He did sone of the introducing.

    Even those tiny bits are really compelling—all of them. Thank you.

    You may not consider yourself to be Cecil B, but I wouldn’t even make it as Ed Wood’s assistant.
    Well done Kat. Fascinating stuff.

      Thanks, Pete
      It might have been interesting being Ed Wood’s assistant!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was a brainstorm to bring that second smaller camera.
