Peace turned forty on March 28th, 2012.
But because her birthday fell in Lent this year it was decided to
postpone the celebration until after Easter.
So it was that Peace’s fortieth birthday bash was held on April 14th.
This was my first experience with putting on such a party in Ghana
and it was quite an event.
We spent weeks collecting the food and drinks, organizing the “spinner”
(the DJ), table and chair rentals, preparing invitations, contacting
friends and relatives.
We held the party in the compound of our accommodation in Madina near the
Central Mosque in Libya Quarters.
It was a tight squeeze, but it worked.
