Ghana

Friday evening....freezing cold...lazy and anti-social mood...dreamy state of mind....makes a perfect mixture of ingredients to stay at home in the warm and post postcards :) though, i have to warn you...my mind makes sentences which make no sense...and there is just no natural flow of thoughts...so its gonna be one of those...*helllllooou, Earth calling Ana* updates...

and lets start off with something new in my collection....Ghana! which includes a map card! Yay!

back in time, i used to have a pen-pal in Ghana...but we didnt last long...he was too odd for my own taste...i was too young to understand his straightforwardness i guess...so after two or three letters, we stopped writing to each other...if i kept writing with him, so far i would have probably had bunch of postcards from Ghana...but then, on the other hand, its totally unfair to befriend someone, just to use them for the cards...and this is actually a totally unnecessary rambling, right? well, i told you..im in an awkward mood....

when looking at this map, i again realize that i need to get down to learning how Africa looks like in geographic terms, and of course, basics about it..otherwise, ill keep feeling ignorant and stupid...

did you know that the word *Ghana* actually means *Warrior King*? well, i got to learn it just now....Warrior King was the title accorded to the kings of the medieval West African Ghana Empire.

hopefully, by the time i get the next card, i will be much smarter, Ghana-related :)
