Friday was spent making final preparations for the students....I met our Ewe language teacher, Elvis who is a graduate student here in Linguistics. We will be working with him for several sessions over the next week. He and I wandered throughout the campus confirming places for our classes and meals. We are very happy to have our space hosted by the Geography Department at the University of Ghana, thanks to Professor Joseph Yaro (a visiting professor to Carleton University last year) and his department head, Professor George Owusu. As a small token of thanks, I presented them with the gift of a projector from our Institute for African Studies at Carleton, courtesy of Director Professor Blair Rutherford.
The grounds at the campus are lovely and I know the students are going to love it there. Its only a brief walk from the Yiri Lodge where we are staying.
