Description

The author was a young man of 28 in 1972, when he was made redundant. Eventually after countless job applications he was employed as a sawmill engineer, in Ghana. He was surprised to find it was a life that suited him and his family - well for the most part. Although the culture shock was a real eye-opener, he and his wife adapted along with their two young boys and began a life that was rich and rewarding and one which the family embraced. There were dark times, when contracts ran out or were terminated and the family had to return to the UK, but there were opportunities to visit far and distant lands, embrace different cuisines, and learn new skills such as scuba diving. This book is an easy and enjoyable read which flows easily and will afford the reader many a chuckle and raised eyebrow.The author was a young man of 28 in 1972, when he was made redundant.

He and his wife June live near to the New Forest but still travel extensively to augment their large collection of photographs above and underwater.
