On the 3rd of May 2017 we travelled for good to Ghana. We vacated our flat, sold the Renault Scenic, cancelled all contracts, abonnements and shipped our last belongings to Accra. It was about time! Funds neared the zero mark and bills where still pouring in like always. with a quater of my former income this was getting out of control. Lucky, we just made it in time! Free at last and as a Swiss refugee in Africa we are feeling just fine. Hope to see you soon :-)

Treberwurst mit den Biremöstler

Kurt rief uns nach Twann zum Treberwurstessen. Schon auf der Hinfahrt wurde ich am Bielersee geblitzt, Kosten CHF 140.--. Auf dem Rückweg in Biel nochmals, diesmal schlug es mit CHF 240.-- zu Buche! Ansonsten war das Treffen ein Hit und es ist immer sehr schön die alten Freunde zu treffen obwohl ich immer ein schlechtes Gewissen bekomme wenn ich hören muss wie jeder sich noch sportlich betätigt und noch sehr fit zu sein scheint! Nun ich bekenne mich zu meiner Faulheit, aus irgendeinem Grunde wurden ja motorisierte Gefährte erfunden! Es ist auch eine Tatsache das ich trotz fragwürdigem Lebenswandel und schlechten Angewohnheiten immer noch da bin. Genug davon! Danke an alle für einen gelungenen Anlass! P.S. Wegen eines Kameradefektes sind die Bilder die ich machte Ausschuss. Kann jemand helfen?

Accra / Ghana Times:   03.05. - 18.11.2017

We will have no longer a residence in Switzerland but will come to visit, once or twice a year, our family and friends. Home will be Accra and you are welcome to visit us!

GHANA V & VI
OUR NEW HOME                             Impressions 2016/17

Our location on GOOGLE EARTH

Many parts of Accra do not have street names, forget about street numbers. Therefore a Navi will not be practical, a guide knowing the location is an advantage! The same goes for our place, no street name!

The home and the house technique

We built ther house 15 years ago and we started restauration in 2013 in order to have a place to stay after my retirement. I always enjoyed my life and work was a means to get money to play with. This worked mostly fine and I learned to be perfectly relaxed when the saldo on my Konto was nearing zero or even into the dark red! In bad times however this attitude could lead to mild stress, mostly damped with a lot of beer. However I realized that afte my retirement no funds, other than the meager AHV and the small amount out of the Pension Scheme, would be available and this was definatly not enough to make a living in Switzerland. Even the rent for a flat woul exceed the means. Let alone the rat tail of other costs. Hence we have to migrate to a more accomodating place. I worked mainly in Nigeria and than the Eastern part of the World (from Istanbul to Tokyo). I retired at the age of 73. We furnished the house with all amenities needed when getting older. No steps, no power cuts (Generator & UPS), fully airconditioned, a comfortable car and a lot of chilled beer! With the meager income we now can even afford a permanent househelp (Fathi). The Temperature is never below 24°C and seldom over 36°C. We living in the Accra West Hills, this means a constant brise and less humidity. We plan a holiday in Europe every 8 months for 3 weeks each. So far so good! In my expirience however, nothing is pertmanent!
