Happy New Year from across the ocean!

From Holli's ramblings Mon Dec 31 2012, 13:03:00

It's been over a year since we left Ghana's tropical shores. It's been a year of beginning a new lifestyle in many new places.

We've left behind red red and fufu for doubles and rotis. Said goodbye to the rich traditions of Ghana to embrace the amazing diversity of the islands that speckle the Caribbean.

Join us on this new adventure! Our first year briefly described here in our new blog:
