Our teammate Suza, from Global New Generation Berlin, has set out on the 25th of October 2019 to support GNG Ghana. The desk is exchanged for farmland and a big land for permaculture. Suza, our photographer and media designer left about 27 days ago on the road to Ghana. And the reason why she still has not arrived, is that she decided to travel by car. Her old VW Golf 4, construction year 1998. She is protected by the United Nations Association Ghana (UNA Ghana), which gives her free escort across all borders. After all, when Suza arrives, the journey continues there. She will travel all over Ghana to promote peaceful elections in Ghana in 2020.
The car will drive through 9 countries until they reach Ghana. She has already passed Germany, France, Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and Gambia.
The trip goes further through Guinee and Ivory Coast, then to Ghana. The pleasure of adventure and the desire to meet all our global friends is the motivation. Our global network (Our network e.v.), global new generation Berlin (GNGBerlin) Team are fully behind her, and also our partners United Nations Association Ghana (UNA Ghana) gives her their safe passage. She will meet partners and exchange ideas, expand our networks and make more friendships.
In Morocco, there was a warm welcome from the German Business Center (GBC), a tour through Morocco with locals and many great contacts for the further journey. There were small cultural difficulties, because she didn´t know what hospitality meant in Morocco. In the North, it is normal that the guest pays, while in the south, it is an insult unless you are invited as a guest.She had to promise that from now on she wouldn´t do this again and just accept the gift.
The German Business Center in Morocco has passed Suza to Daklar, just at the border of Mauritania. She was taken from a company and was able to obtain an overview of local trades and markets. At the end, our learned photographer could still give something back and thanked them with a photo shooting.
The adventure border was passed through the infinite desert, and a 5 km stretch off-road was definitely a challenge. Fortunately, the VW Golf 4 made it. The journey was rewarded with new friends in Mauritania.
The journey continued to Senegal, where she was welcomed in various regions and hospitable families and could make further contacts.
We continue to monitor her journey ( In the name of love) and wish good luck and success dear Suza.
I `ll write to You in the next few days about her ongoing journey.
