We’ve always wanted to go to Africa and Ghana was a country we knew little about.  Without knowing why, we decided to go for a visit and find out firsthand how the people live.  We arrived at the Kotoka International Airport in Ghana’s capital city Accra at night and, me, I had a fever.  They stopped me from going through the security check to screen me for the Ebola virus. I got a little bit scared but only for a minute.
