Accra: Nogahil Hotel

Accra When Spencer is making plans for his trip to Accra he tells his administrative assistant that he will only stay in a hotel with an outdoor bar. “I’m not going all the way to Africa to sit in air-conditioning.”

Robin and I watch the same television shows in our separate rooms. The next morning we compare notes. Robin describes almost every show as “scary” especially the one where the man is trapped in a pit and can’t get Rah Rah Rasputin out of his mind.

I order rice and beans. Robin says “That sounds good. I’ll have that as well.” The waiter returns from the kitchen to say that they only had enough for one order of rice and beans. Robin has pizza or egg rolls instead. This happens repeatedly.
