OK, I am going to admit that I did not take this picture today. If I had I would be writing you from the Gold Coast of Ghana which is where this picture was actually taken. And it was taken with my first “big girl” camera with a stock lens. Not too bad for all that.
I have had one of those days. You will have to forgive me. I spent time this morning screaming at my computer because it wouldn’t tell me in plain English how to do what I wanted to do. Computers don’t like that.
And then I spent some time looking through some photos that I am thinking about putting up on the website and I came across this one and remembered that I liked it so much when I took it. This was actually taken in 2006 on a visit to Ghana with Opportunity International. We were traveling along the Gold Coast and had stopped at a rest area to “use the facilities”. As we all piled out of the bus, out of the bushes appeared a group of children with baskets. And in the baskets were snails which they attempted to sell us for dinner.
Fresh! Very fresh. Boil them! Cook them in butter. Delicious!
And I know that you are thinking, “What’s the big deal with a few little snails?”
See what I mean.
And they were still MOVING!!!
Makes the homemade Cream of Potato soup that we are having tonight seem extra delicious.
