Photo of the day: Fishing Village

When I travelled to Ghana I had the opportunity to visit a fishing village in the coast of Takoradi.

And they were living in huts made by … Continue reading Photo of the day: Fishing Village

English lifestyle

Growing up, depending on our environment, we gain certain stereotypes. Sometimes they are positive and others negative. As a child, I remember seeing England as the country of red. All the pictures of England would show the red buses, the red telephone booths, and the red-brick houses. Although these are indeed very stereotypical when in … Continue reading English lifestyle
