It has been a long week, but I’ve enjoyed my stint at the helm of Konongos premiere Australian-Ghanaian blog while chrissie mooches around Paris with the kids (arguably a harder job).
The photo of the week, vote by me with a landslide 100% of the votes is :
It’s hard work. From digging the ore in cramped, sometimes dangerous mines through moving tonnes of rock, usually by hand. This photo is pay day – panning a concentrate for its gold.
What a week.
–Starting with a list of things about Ghana that are strikingly different from Australia – 60 different things about Ghana,
–Moving straight into a short spiel on why West Africa lives up to the dark continent moniker – the 10 minute challenge ( a west africa-centric quiz which I know you all did astoundingly badly at – except perhaps qn 3).
–Jock helped keep things light by having a bit of a hair day – The Mbongo tree
–Then we descended into organisational hell – This is a true story.
–And just to prove it wasn’t a fluke, Chris repeated the horror 10 days later – A true story part II.
I miss you guys already. Have fun.
Why is it I can not seem to get myself motivated to go and live at my soon to be wife’s home country ???
Looks like a landslide coming from that guys left ear. It was a little clearer when I enlarged photo; but still can’t see his weathy gold find.
