I have been in Sierra Leone for a week, and this morning, I took a trip to Goderich, a fishing community with a huge Fante population, near Freetown, accompanied by Ato Brown, the Ghanaian World Bank Country Manager for Sierra Leone, and we saw serious fish... real fish... The kind of fish that has become rare species in Ghana's seas... And yes, they are in the seas of Sierra Leone... There may be all kinds of ecological reason why, but when we spoke to the Fisherfolks (in Fante) they were clear in their minds, that the illegal fishing practices in Ghana is the cause. First, the trawlers are checked and prevented from fishing at least 5 kilometers from the shore... Second, they told us they only use the right size of net ie 2 inches by 2 inches (and we did not see any monofilament nets)......

A container of imported chickens that had gone was taken to the Bomeh dumping site yesterday afternoon to be thrown away, but despite police intervention to prevent the rotten chicken from being taken away by people, none of the cartons of smelly chickens could be buried! The few police personnel deployed to ensure the expired cartons of chickens were properly buried were overpowered by the large crowds who regarded the circumstance as an opportunity to get some food for their families and to make some money from sales.There will be little surprise if we hear of an outbreak of diarrhea in the coming days.This is not the first time expired food has been dug up from the dumping site. The Government issued a statement warning the public against eating the contaminated chicken.
A Landrace pepper from Sierra Leone. This one was found in Kroo Town Street Market in the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown. Another great West African pepper sent to me by Joe Delaney. The aroma is all straight ahead chinense, with slight fruit notes. The flavor is also very straight ahead C.chinense, with aspects of sweetness and fruitiness. There is an undercurrent of black pepper flavor in an astringent way. This is another African pepper that was quite different in flavour to most C.chinense I`ve had. It really is a delicious one and well worth seeking out seeds to grow. The heat is another slow-onset type, but quite aggressive and biting. It sits on your tongue and is relatively painful for a pepper that is roughly half as hot as a habanero. How hot was it? Half as hot as an hab...

(I was spendin' too much time alExplainone)
Spendin' too much time alone...
(And I just ran outta Trojans)
Horses gallop to her throne
(We were behaving like teenagers)
We're behaving like teenagers
(Makin' less than minimum wage)
Still inside our parents' homes
(No I don't live in Denver)
No I don't live in Denver
(I grew up in Sierra Leone)
And her pink skies will keep me warm
Tid bits of intuition that I be gettin' abandon admission (Sierra Leone)
Abandon mission, you must be kiddin', this shit feelin' different
Shit feelin' too good to me
Glistening, shimmerin' underneath the sunlight, the sunlight (Sierra Leone)
And a new day will bring about the dawn
And a new day will bring another cryin' babe into the world (girl now)
Our daughter's reachin' for the nipple cause it's time for her to eat
Tonight I'll lay her in the cradle if it's time for go to sleep
I sing a Lennon lullaby, she can have a pretty dream
Baby girl if you knew what I know, knew what I know
Na, na na, na na, na...
