My visit to Paa Joe: Tuesday.

It was another early start to the day.  We set off for Akuapem Hills, two hours from Accra in the beautiful hillside.  Paa Joe grew up surrounded by this amazing landscape until he was about 16.  It was such a great place to visit and we met some of his old family friends, including a chief who had known him since a child.

I feel very fortunate to have seen the place where Paa Joe grew up, these very humble surroundings in the hills of Africa, and I feel honored to know the man he is now, making his mark on the world and being so respected in his craft.

After this, I went back to Pobiman and stayed near Paa Joe’s workshop.
