Evidently Founders' Day is the Ghanaian equivalent of Thanksgiving. You eat until it hurts in order to give thanks to Kwame Nkrumah for making Ghana free forever. I also learned that Ghanaians find the spectacle of white people eating fufu to be a celebratory event in itself. No sooner had I dipped my hand in the palm nut soup to start eating the fufu then a half a dozen people broke out their cameras to photograph me.
