Last week shortly after I arrived I had omo tuo and palmnut/groundnut soup at Agbamami restaurant in Tema (Tema's version of Asanka Local) with Kajsa Adu (an active member of ghanablogging.com) and her family. I admired her Obama bag. Signs of the Obama family's popularity abound: DK served Obama biscuits [cookies] to some students last week, and yesterday I saw some Michelle Obama cloth at a seamstress' shop.
Kajsa remarked at lunch that they refer to the ubiquitous toothpicks on the tables, commonly used at the end of the meal, as "Ghana's dessert." Very apt.
