On my first night in Tema, it rained heavily; but by the morning, the sun was out and the sky was clear. After breakfast, I did some errands with Aggie in the Community 1 market, and we visited her older brother Emmanuel. Emmanuel’s son graduated from Davidson about 4 years ago. Later that day, we got a call around 5:00 pm that the Davidson students were in Tema, but they couldn’t find the house. So we drove to meet them and bring them back to the house. The students were Rachel Winston and Sarah Bennett. The driver of the car from Cape Coast also drove the carpenter who was working on Aggie’s table, and brought other things from Emmanuel Sr.’s to bring back to Cape Coast.
We all then cooled down under the tree in front of Aggie’s house until Edmund, Aggie’s husband, returned from Kibi – he was out fulfilling his responsibilities as chief “of the rear guard.” Edmund had lived in New York, first as an ambassador with the Ghanaian mission to the UN until 1981, and then as a private citizen.
