Her husband has passed away but she still lives there.

    I have a cousin who has retired in Ghana and who has actually connected with our LONG distant cousins over there. Long story. It was great to trace our roots, something I have been trying to do for a long time. There is a global family reunion every year and I am going to try to make it.

    I need to visit while these older cousins are still with us.
    Awww...so you do have a soft side?

    The border to/from Morocco-Ceuta was a cacophany of noise.. People yelling, car horns blaring and engines revving ... it was mass confusion. I saw a few Moroccan women bent way over walking across the border with heavy duty bags strapped to their backs. The way how people were scrambling to either get in or out gave the impression there was a shut-down period to enter/leave either countries but I finally understood that the women porters (they call them "mule women") make 2 and more trips in one day.

How Africans in different part of the continent seem to know that I'm from Jamaica? Still a mystery.

    It was off to Morocco, then Ghana, then back to Morocco... took a segue crossing the land border to Ceuta, back to Morocco, then spent last few days in France. A trip of adventure, the gastronomy... lots of eating... the wine... too much sleeping, then staying up late all night... arguments between two hot headed people, the compromises... it takes one smile and then the laughter.... so much of it... crazy immigration officers :scary: ... the cold weather was a bit too much.

    I'm home, back to my comfort, my family, my job, daily runnings of life and the things that are home.

    The end.
