Am I in Love with a Pretty Face in Ghana
"But I don't want some pretty faceI want to thank all the concerned friends and readers who have written me personal e-mails warning me to be careful with Bah. I do not want anyone to think I am ignoring you, or that I have "lost the plot."
To tell me pretty lies
All I want is someone to believe."
- Billy Joel
What are the protesters' grievances?Am I in Love with a Pretty Face in Ghana
Like their counterparts in Egypt, Tunisia, and other countries in the region, the protesters want democratic reforms--for instance, more freedom for political parties--as well as a more open press, an end to corruption and cronyism, increased economic opportunities, and stronger constitutional rights.

I spent a couple of years in Ghana and met plenty of pretty girls. Not a single one wanted to come to America. For the most part, they love their tribal culture, and wouldn't leave for the world.
For a Westerner/Traverler, West Africa appears to be pure chaos, but the West Africans relish in their way of life, it's just the way they want it.
I became romantically involved with a couple of the ladies in Ghana, I even asked one to come and visit me in America - answer - "No, I'm an African girl and I will stay in Africa".
When it comes to money, it's been my experience that they just want the basic necessities of life, but if you happen to be walking through the market with them, of course they are like any other women on Earth, they want another pair of sandels, etc., etc.
I do miss Ghana!

Wow. I listened to your podcast about Central America. I was amazed. It answered all my questions. I am planning to visit Guatamala first. I will email you about it. I am kind of excited because this is a part of the world I have never been to. It will be fun.
Thanks for such an incredible amount of information with no bias or preconceived bias. I really appreciate being able to avail myself of such high quality and helpful information.

You crack me up! Your e-mail is titled, "Am I in love with a pretty face in Ghana" and when I go to see the e-mail, it's a photo of a rice cooker!
I think it is so fantastic if you have found love in Ghana! Why not? Sure, you have to be careful there or anywhere. Honestly, none of us have ever attempted to do what you are doing and none of us have had to live on true grit and instincts like you have. So, if you've found love and you are at peace with it, go for it!
You have probably noticed that I'm a Christian and so I want to add one more thing. Keep everything in prayer and be blessed!
Your Tucson Arizona Friend!

Honestly, we have faint idea of what the people in the middle east want. What they don't want is to be dragged to an underground prison and tortured, They don't want to be held without trial for years for voicing a contradictory opinion, They don't want to fear the pounding on the door in the early morning hours, They don't want another brother, father, friend disappearing. Maybe this translates into democracy for them.

Hey Andy forget all those naysayers and "friends" comments and warnings. My wife and I learned long ago NOT to voice opinions regarding the dynamic between couples as time will tell whether they benefit and fullfill each other's needs and expectations or not. When it comes to love described anyway as infatuation lust, sou mate whatEVER it feels good and one can NOT expect a woman to be a male. We are and always will be different when it comes to daily living and what seems "crazy" to females and what catches their eye in public or the market with differ from what will catch a man's eye. It comes with eh territory so to speak, can't live with them and can NOT live withOUT them, good luck and welcome tot he world introspective contradictions. BE HAPPY! Enjoy Life!

A male is always vulnerable when a woman is involved. We are concerned, but we are not there, and we are not you.. Hear the advice and take it if it makes sense to you, if not, just be glad people care enough to be concerned.
