Tuesday 1st February - Holly

Finally managed to get up at the ungodly hour of 6 a.m. so that I could wash all my clothes by hand, yet still managed time to take advantage of the complimentary continental breakfast at Africa Beach Hotel (ABH).  One happy tummy!
Classes began with some group reading lead by Miss Mary and each child had a chance to read aloud to the class.  Some clearly relished the prospect and it was difficult to stop them from over stepping the page allowance, but others look mortified, shame.  Next on the agenda was PE, and shock horror, I joined in with them!  Poor Kofi has to have the pink hula-hoop but the other children weren’t exactly willing to make that sacrifice and Kofi ended up in floods of tears.  As Music was cancelled due to a poorly teacher's absence, double handwriting followed by D&T ensued.  Finally, we continued our talk about 'World Remembrance Day' in the afternoon.
Back at Africa Beach, I met a couple (Brian and Lorinda Smith) who had just relocated from South Africa to Accra and were temporarily staying at ABH until their containers of possessions had been shipped over.  We chatted about all the usual trials and tribulations of newcomers’ experience and they invited me to stay with them in Accra on my return journey home.  I then bumped into Colin and Becca who treated me to a fabulous Indian meal, such a luxury!  Feeling fit to burst, I rolled into bed no later than 10 p.m.
