    Old World-New World

    I have just returned from a trip to Africa, an ancestral journey if you will!’ My journey took me to Benin and Ghana and much has changed since I was last in Ghana in 1987.  It’s exciting and forward-looking with some surprises!  A very modern city with a lot of new investment in some areas and also its fair share of poverty and hardship.
