I visited West Africa for the very first time when I went to see the CHIPS Team in the Northern Region of Ghana.
CHIPS Team Leader Desmond and all the Team Members warmly welcomed me to Nakpayili on Monday June 9th. I was made to feel very much at home, and enjoyed all aspects of living in the CHIPS base - in a beautifully-built round house for each person, sharing their unfamiliar food, which I rapidly came to like. The afternoon siesta proved a welcome institution, as temperatures were in the high 30’s C, with 98% humidity!
