Leaving in a Ford Everest....

Well, it is not quite a jet plane but I will be gone for a short trip out of Accra for the field. I'm the trusty team-leader and in true procrastinatory fashion, I'm blogging when we should be putting together the final "to do" list. I'm aiming at a work-throughout the weekend schedule but hope to catch up with the last pages of Harmattan Rain which I'm hooked to and still reading. Love it! Yes, all you voracious book readers must be horrified that I'm still "on it". Car is here..have to run!

Have fun!

Lemme tell you about that damn Harmattan Rain! I borrowed it from my friend on a Friday evening and I was done on Sunday evening. I just couldn't put the book down. It was that good. I wanted to kick myself for reading it too fast after I was done. Left me wanting more and more and more. What a good book!

Abena abi I told you about Harmattan Rain? Hmm field trips can be exciting but at the same time haunting especially looking for the best place to sleep and food and all that...as an M&E officer working with farmers I have been to the North (Tamale) and Upper East (Bolga) and their communities often and one thing I am always scared of is getting a better place to sleep (not in Tamale) but in Bolga or sometimes Wa (my colleague know more about this).

Enjoy the trip and let's read something about it on your blog...

@Anon: I agree, I so don't want to finish it and so I'm just hanging on!

@RocNaija:Hehehe! Blame it on the blogging indeed!

@Posekyere: Nice to hear that you were here waiting...I'm back!...tired and looking pretty scary! Waiting to go home...

@Nana F-A: I really hear you!! I could write a book on this past field trip. Food and accommodation can be hard to come by. Food is usually kenkey overload..speaking of interesting food stories.. We were given some coconuts by a very friendly community man..for some reason it had no effect on myself or one other person in the group. For 5 other people: all night diarrhea! This can be really hard when the closest flushing toilet is a quarter mile away.
