The Adventures of Laptop

Preface: This is horribly, horribly late, but I thought there still might be interest in the travelling adventures between Canada and Ghana. So here it is! It was just waiting for the pictures. (Predated to when it should have been posted so that it makes more chronological sense)

Herein follows the account of the adventures of dear, brave laptop, who made an eventful and hectic journey from the safe embrace of the EWB National Office in Toronto, Canada, to its drop-off point at the Kics Guest House in Tamale, Ghana.

Laptop hopped a plane to Amsterdam, but was too harassed and tired to think about capturing the moment for posterity.

Laptop’s first move after landing in Amsterdam was to get on a super-fast train from the Schiphol airport into the city, bypassing many suburbs.

Laptop thought that the best way to take in the sights would be to take a canal cruise, so before searching for breakfast Laptop looked up the options.

Posing with the local technology, bikes and canals, Laptop reflected on how very different the world could be.

Yet was bewildered and reassured when it found Canadian paraphernalia side by side with local Dutch souvenirs.

Laptop experiences garbage day on the Amsterdam streets.

Breakfast time at last! At a local cafe where classic Dutch pancakes were the delectable decision.

Laptop had an interesting and heartbreaking reflection at the Anne Frank house, and  only was allowed a snap in front of the building.

This is Laptop anxiously awaiting the train, not having realised it only ran every half an hour and feeling strained for time to get back to the airport.

Laptop finally rests a night in Accra, in the Kokomlemle guest house. An early morning the next day to get on the STC station and a 12-hour bus ride to Tamale finished off the journey.
