Wo Se Ekyir

This page will be updated to contain the posts from the early years (2008 - 2010) ordered from earliest to latest. These posts were meant to solve the problem of lack of available writing that celebrated life in Ghana as I knew it. They were inspired in part by the Fante proverb: Wo se ekyir nyε  wo dεw a, εhɔ  ara na etafer which means if the backside of your teeth doesn't taste good, you have nowhere else to lick but that.  Fundamentally, the proverb preaches the value of celebrating the good and repairing the bad rather than discarding it.
