The (AvTech) girls and I enjoyed some much needed splash time today as we went for swimming lessons at Sojuna. We practiced floating on our back as well as building lung capacity, but their favorite part was learning to play chicken! Please pardon the lack of photos of our game, considering I was in the middle of getting dunked.
Although many Ghanaians live along the lake, there are a great many who don’t know how to properly swim. Granted, we don’t want to encourage unnecessary exposure to potentially Schisto-infested water…however, considering how many canoe accidents happen in the deep waters of Lake Volta, I have to wonder if swimming shouldn’t be included in our training courses!
