#462 A Hot Start in Africa

John Muir called Africa the "Hot Continent".  After our first day on the ground in equatorial Africa, we agree with John. 

Our hot Sunday walk through Takoradi's central market circle (the town's hub and spoke layout is Washington DC-like) put us face-to-face with enormous snails, live crabs, scalded pig's feet, guinea fowl, and fish in all possible forms. No photos allowed.
Clearly Sunday in Takoradi was all about the churches.  Familiar hymns like "Rock of Ages" drifted through open pointed-arch windows into bustling courtyards.  The local ladies do love to dress up for church and once services were over, they loved having their pictures taken.

Yours in enjoying a hot African start,
