I spent this summer in the West African country of Ghana, living in East Legon, a hamlet outside the capital city of Accra. (Read up on the fairly stable democracy here.)
I lived in a hostel on the campus of the University of Ghana, where I was studying politics and the West African aesthetic.
If white people like to be the only white people around, boy did I get that treatment during my time walking and playing basketball and reading and touring this fairly stable West African nation.
My first e-mail home is posted here. I wrote a reflection, see it here.
I shot enough video to put together an hour-long documentary of sorts chronicling my time there. See the trailer below.
Below see my reflection read and put to video and photos.
