Oh, what a long day!  Linda and Abraham took the trip to Accra via trotro and got a whole lot of shopping accomplished!  Abraham negotiated the best prices possible for the goods that make up our Basics Kits (the album is coming very soon) and they also got loads of bins to store and protect all the text books we purchased!
