Whenever anyone asks what I like best about traveling and working in Ghana, my answer is always the same--the people. I am fortunate to have met some truly amazing people in Ghana, many of whom have become lasting partners and close friends. In the midst of meetings, dinners, and random encounters, I continue to be amazed at the love, enthusiasm, and happiness that permeates life in Ghana. I think that the New York Times article below captures this spirit as it comments on Ghanaian funerals as a celebration of life. Enjoy!
