Bread in Ghana
Linguistically, many Ghanaians find it hard to pronounce the letter R clearly. They pronounce it as letter L. Now, now with just half loaf of bread left on the table for our three visitors, I asked our mission boy to run like a leopard and buy some bread. In a few seconds, he came back grasping and handed me three small boxes or stainless blades. Aghast, I asked, “What are these for?” “You told me to buy blade Father,” he said convincingly. One of the visitors, a Ghanaian lady who perfectly knew of the problem was convulsed with laughter and almost dropped her tea.
