Eating With My DAD!

    Thank you very much to 23andMe for sponsoring this video. Learning about my ancestry and discovering some of my taste preferences, and comparing them with my Dad, was fascinating. He and I both had a great time meeting and eating. We happen to be traveling in Ghana, and my Dad happened to be in Nairobi, Kenya for a few days having some meetings, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity, to meet my Dad. Luckily it all worked out smoothly!

    Accra, Ghana

    Waakye - 8 GHC ($1.80) - Waakye is a popular Ghanaian food / meal, and that’s what we started the day with. You get rice and beans, a number of other starches, and some tomato sauce stew and meats, all piled high into a leaf bowl. It was delicious!

    Makola Market - Next we visited Makola Market, the largest and most energetic market in Accra. It’s a must visit, to see the energy and life at the market.

    The Accra Arts Center - Finally, we stopped off at the Accra Arts Center to buy a few things before leaving in at night.

    Accra to Nairobi - We had a late night flight, and we landed early at sunrise to cool Nairobi!

    After checking into a hotel just for 1 night, we took a quick hour nap, and then jumped into a taxi to go meet my Dad who was staying at a guesthouse.

    It was great to see my Dad and at the guesthouse we compared our ancestry and our taste preference.

    Then we went to go eat some Kenyan food, which was a highlight. Now do you know where I got my love for food from?

    Java House coffee - Finally, as you already know, I have a tendency to enjoy caffeine, and so does my Dad. So it was only right to stop for a cup of coffee to finish.

    Thank you for watching, and again, a big thank you to for sponsoring this video.

                              Haha, he said "meating"... I think that means eating a bunch of meat with his dad.
