Hello everybody. I am having a great time talking with kids, adults, men and women all with as much passion if not much more for football. The question "how do you see the game ? " is as common as how are you. "The Black Stars" Ghana's national team has made it in to the second round of play in the Cup of African Nations. I attended all three of there qualifying matches to make it in. The played Namibia, Guinea, and Morocco. Beating all three. Also yesterday I went to see the Ivory Coast and there sharp shooter of Chelsea, England fame Drogba beat Mali 3 - 0 . To see him play for his national side " The Elephants" was a real blessing. This whole trip so far is just filled with blessings large and small with lessons in life to match. Hope all who have read this are well and send my love to those who don't read Blogs hehehehe like me.

Home Away From Home

Hello all. Hope things are good for you and your's. I am now in Ghana. I have a wonderful place to stay by the beach with a family of unique kindness. The whole country is as excited about the Soccer tournament as I am. Great to be in a country that respects the game as much as I do. I will have some pictures up soon. This place demands visuals and deserves a hands on experience. When you are ready to meet your extended family make the trip.
