Favorite Things to Do When Running in Accra
- •Jump over open sewersSometimes I pretend like the sewers are hurdles. Only more dangerous and unsanitary. Xtreme sports!!
- •Wave back at waving kidsSometimes kids will race you for a stretch
- •Pretend like I'm in a post apocalyptic zombie horror movie when passing by burning trash piles on the streetNothing like filling your lungs with trash smoke while engaging in cardio
- •Compare and contrast front gatesMost front gates of houses here are quite ornate (gaudi) and I of course have my favorites.
- •Facilitate a goat stampedeGoat stampedes are easy to create. Find a flock of goats, run through it, and enjoy the mayhem.
- •Race tro tros over speed bumpsThis is the only time I will ever stand a chance at outrunning a moving vehicle. Great confidence boost!
- •After passing people on the street who call me "Obruni!" Shout back over my shoulder, "Obruni? Where?!"Haven't actually worked up the courage to do this yet.
