Escapades in Ghana.



I walk out the room, I am going to the common toilet in the Hotel de Ship here in Nkawkaw, Ghana. The handle pulls of and the square rod that extends through the mechanism goes flying somewhere, I never did find it.

Toothbrush in hand, Macgyver in brain.

I am in a light blue, extra large towel, the same towel I walked around in my boxing argument in Badou, Togo.

Toothbrush, towel, not a happy man, there is no way to enter my room.

The African girl comes and wants to help, she tries to grab the handle and help. I say,
- You have NO idea what you are doing! -

She leaves... where I do not know.

I jamb the toothbrush into the square hole, pull on the door at the top with my little finger, wiggle it, work around and it finally opens.

15 minutes later the women returns.

25 minutes later a man comes to fix, however has no tools or handles or anything with him.

I had 25 minutes to pack and was on the way out of the room when the arrived. I would hate to not have a Macgyver mind. Mechanics is not on the high level here. I keep saying, dump the cleaning lady, what a hotel needs always is a maintenance man, maybe a women, they are both going to return with no tools, so maybe more work can be performed by a woman.
