Tommy’s Penpals: Ghana

Hi guys! As I’m traveling around the world, I’m meeting so many new and interesting people. It’s been such a wonderful chance to see the way things happen in other people’s lives and homes. GhanaI’ve invited my new friends to be my penpals, so you’ll start seeing friends from all over the world posting to let us know the adventures they have, too! I’m really excited to introduce you to some of my friends!

Here’s my friend Bobo. He lives in Accra, Ghana, which is in Africa. In this photograph, he is with his best friend, Queen Nana Noyana Opata. That’s right, she is royalty! Check out his letter to us, but stay tuned to learn more from our friends around the world.

Dear Tommy,

Hello from Africa! I’m very glad to meet you and all of your friends in Durham, North Carolina. I am looking forward to our letters!

Let me start by telling you about some of my favorite things. First of all, I love food! map-ghana-africa-impMy favorite foods are French fries, fried plantains, and rice, goat stew. But my favorite thing to eat? That is definitely Waakya, which is spaghetti, beans, and fried fish wrapped in a leaf. Yum!

When I’m not busy eating, I love to spend time with my best friend, Queen Nana Noyana Opata. Together, we often enjoy spending time in the market,where we buy all of our delicious food. My other favorite thing, besides food, is getting hugs from all the kids in our village. I hope you get to meet them all some day.

I love seeing the adventures you’re having with your friends, so please keep posting them!
