Akwaaba Ghana

One of the three postcards sent by Kofi from Accra-North in Ghana. Akwaaba in Ewe Language means "Welcome".

The postcard shows Accra Memorial where Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first President (1909 - 1972) was buried.

This is from Wikipedia : Kwame Nkrumah (21 September 1909 - 27 April 1972), was an influential 20th century advocate of Pan-Africanism, and the leader of Ghana and its predecessor state, the Gold Coast, from 1952 to 1966.
