Good morning friends. I realize it has been a while since I last shared my journey encounters with you. And today seems to be the right day. We are now in Ghana and my daughters took great interest in taking a day to explore the slave castles here and understand slavery. To me, this time when this inhumane form of trade was generally accepted conduct has resulted in the confusion of post-colonial African culture, economic disparity, and dignity of people of African origin.
I will admit whole heartedly that I did not have the stomach to walk the castles as bravely as my daughters. Instead, I sat down next to the local fishermen to write this note to share my feelings with you. I asked myself if we are not repeating the normalization of this practice today as I looked at the young woman with a child on her back in front of me washing dishes to serve the fishermen, and as I spoke on the phone with an Alaffia team member whose husband, a teacher, is not being fairly compensated. I again questioned myself that while one cannot equate the suffering of the slave trade with the suffering I currently see, I cannot also engage in unfairness of trade of the goods, services, dignity - dignity of ourselves.

While this may seem "gloom and doom" as they say, it is with the belief that we must look at history, not only to enjoy the upcoming holidays with our families or alone, but also to wonder in a meaningful way if we as people are choosing a better future for the generations on the horizon? And should we be responsible? From Ghana, the town of Elmina, I wish you happy holidays.
Sincerely,
Olowo-n'djo

  6. Academic writing is clear, concise, focussed, structured and backed up by evidence. Its purpose is to aid the reader’s understanding.

    It has a formal tone and style, but it is not complex and does not require the use of long sentences and complicated vocabulary.

    Each subject discipline will have certain writing conventions, vocabulary and types of discourse that you will become familiar with over the course of your degree. However, there are some general characteristics of academic writing that are relevant across all disciplines.

  11. Hello. Thank you for your post. I've never been to Ghana, and I decided to writemypaper about this country.
    Ghana is a small state located in the western part of the African continent off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is to Ghana from all corners of the planet that electronic computers, monitors, printers, scanners, etc. are taken for disposal. As a result, Ghana's dumps are considered to be the largest in the world, and its capital, the city of Accra, is unofficially called "city- trash ».
    This settlement is an example of what the planet will turn into if you do not think about the future. However, despite the frank poverty and pollution, not everything here is so terrible.
    The first thing that strikes visitors is the affability of the locals - everyone will meet you with a smile. However, it is very difficult to establish communication, let alone learn the local language, like any African language. Moreover, in Ghana, 11 languages ​​of various tribes are recognized as official state.
    In Ghana, there are many interesting sights. A special place is occupied by various castles and fortresses, built by the colonialists in the Middle Ages - there are hundreds of them.
