Guides of our march

Ghana has interested me since I was young. I visited Ghana in 2016 where I participated among others in a village outreach program. I also visited several parts of Ghana (a few of them I mentioned in my story) and focused on contacts with the locals. In my story I provide a historical picture of the slave trade as experienced by a particular person narrated by descendants of this person. I see great opportunities for both countries once the relationship between Ghana and Curacao is tightened. These opportunities are based on my own experiences while in Ghana. In my story I elaborate on such opportunities.

We stand tall wearing our crown

I can’t imagine talking about cultural similarities and historical connections without addressing
the pride of a woman which is all in her hairdo.

Open the way

“This key will open the right door for you.” 

The impending farewell

As descendant of slaves, married to a dutchman, we bought an landhouse, build around 1750. I do think that all spirits are with us , and helped us throughout the restoration of this very important, historical building.

The Compassionate State

“His eyes fixate on the daunting stairs that lie ahead, leading to the scaffold. The executioner awaits him at the top. Nine steps separate him from death.”

My compare with Ghana

My travel to Ghana 2011/2012. giving an excerpt about the content, what followed on viewpoint diaspora.

African-Caribbean airbridge

Unlike the sand, a West African who wants to travel to the Caribbean has to go through either Europe or the United States. The other way around, it’s the same. They tell me it’s because the routes between our regions are not sustainably profitable.
