Just started. With hopes for some changes within next few months. Cross your fingers.

Another update

A friend from Frankfurt was visiting us here in London a few weeks ago and we indeed had a blast. A few pics below.

Party. At our place.

After party. Starbucks near our place.

Another party. In a pub. Me and my friend Kasia.

My dear friend Kasia. Solo this time.

London Eye

A trip to Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge. Morning coffee.

Catchin' up - part one - Africa

So… I know it’s been a long while, but life’s been REALLY hectic recently. Anyway – below – a “photo-story” of my trip to Africa. Enjoy!

All inclusive - African style. Axim.

Heavenly beach - forget about Thailand! Axim.

Canopy walk over tropical rainforest.

Welcome to the Hotel California.

Clearly, the Portuguese weren't focused on aesthetics when conducting their first investments in Ghana. Elmina Castle, est. XVI cent.

Fishing is really important for this major city. Cape Coast.

Cape Coast fortress: a girl with a cannon.

This, of course, is a funeral. Only in Africa.

Ghanaian economy is mainly propelled by people carrying stuff on their heads.

A woman. A fat one too.

Irish pubs are everywhere, even in Accra.

Plantain, anyone?

Now, seriously, you need an elegant haircut. Kumasi.

Ghana, too, has congestion problems. Kumasi.

And if you were wondering whether there are limits to size of stuff people can carry on their heads.

Me. Waiting for food. 50 minutes. Kumasi.

More stuff on head.

Just when you thought you've seen it all: head + baby on the back.

High Street shoe boutique. Try to find 2 identical shoes. Kumasi.

Plenty of food. Seriously.

Corn from a street vendor.

Must buy.

Ghanaian fauna.

Typical Kumasi street.

Weird stuff on the head.

Eat - banana - eat, eat - banana!

Toys. Kids love them. Outside of Kumasi.

My podel posing for 2 cents.

Another pic. Still within 2 cents.

Typical Ghanaian view - young man, spending days... thinking.

God, Inc.

Dr. Jesus?

God, Inc. - one more branch.

God, Inc. - in fast food business, too!

What an arse!

Fat people = wellbeing...

Whaddya want? Monkey forest, north of Kumasi.

That wide?

Me. Feeding monkeys.

Great power with you lies...

A bunch of monkeys.

Looks familiar? I think I've seen those on the other side of the globe, quite recently.

Same tree, from inside.

Tropical rainforest.

Stay on these roads...

Kintampo Falls - upper.

More Kintampo Falls.

Me, on the African picnic grounds (take a closer look at the sign on the tree).

Lower Kintampo Falls - really impressive.


Really wet!

African grasshopper - really huge.

Lunch plaza on a bus stop.

Typical Ghanaian view - young woman, spending days... thinking...

But now, seriously...

Got hunger?

Seriously, no urinating.

The only reason these 2 are willing to pose for the pic is because I just gave them 2 pens - a real rarity in Ghana!

Some more people with stuff on their heads.

This is a main rail track in Ghana and also, naturally, a marketplace. Kumasi.
