[tweetable]A life filled with travel is important because you are reminded of the common threads of humanity[/tweetable] that bond us together rather than tear us apart.
Wisdom to impart of younger travelers: never judge, ask a lot of thoughtful and respectful questions, don't be too naive and overly trusting but also, don't put up too many barriers.
Words to live by: Treat others as you'd like to be treated--live by the Golden Rule.
The Black Star is rising The Gold Coast strikes oil Investing in her people and gaining wisdom from her neighbors Don't let them export your future
Roads with names that no one remembers
Heat and humidity, sweat beads up
Rhythm and beat that blasts from cars
Horns say hello, say I'm here, say move out of the way
Dark outside but a flashlight shines
Uniforms gaze in the taxi
Drive away, back to the Highgate, Asylum Down
Careful as you step out
Be aware of your surroundings, you aren't of this place
Smiling and kind
Praise God and be thankful
Ghana, the Black Star is rising.
