“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.”


Okay. So this one is tough. In Ghana, the common greeting between everyone is a handshake, but its a special handshake. It starts as a grab, moves swiftly into a regular handshake, and then ends with your middle fingers snapping off one another. Grab a friend and give it a try, but don’t get too frustrated. I still haven’t really mastered it (and not for a lack of trying), but I quickly learned that there are certain people that can make you snap, no matter how hopeless you are at it!

I found this clip on YouTube that illustrates the handshake really well:


Good luck!
