The first week is done and after a half day of working on Saturday we spent the rest of the day and Sunday relaxing a bit.

At 15:00 On Saturday afternoon we did got our swimming licence for the Tarwka club pool. The Test involved swimming two lengths of the pool treading water for 2 minutes and diving a golf ball out of the 2.2 meter deep pool. I have to admit I did not succeed on my first attempt I just floated to the top

The Water in the pool was not a lot cooler than it was outside but it was rather refreshing. Strangely enough the gentleman that did the test is also called Martin van der Merwe

Gert and Heidi invited us to a braai at their house which was a whole lot of fun.

On Sunday morning we were invited to join some of the Goldfields people to go to the Busua Beach resort which is about an hour from Tarkwa. It was a lovely trip which included a nice long walk some Beer and some attempts at swimming in the Atlantic, which is insanely warm in Ghana.
