Dear Nii Kpakpo,
I have been in Tamale for almost five years and i have still not been to the famous Mole Game Reserve where the elephants are and most tourists to the north constantly visit. Anyemi, i have gone as far as the gates and lost interest and come back for one reason or the other. Other times i have just missed the bus to the game reserve since they usually leave at dawn when i am now going to sleep. Insomnia tinz!
Now you will wonder why i am writing this letter at this time. chale it is because now i am taking my travels to a new level by helping set up a tour agancy to specialize in travel sites and draw tour packages all over Ghana. Nii Kpakpo you know back in the Bearded Man City whilst i was at the Historical Society, i used to draw tour programs for the oyibo students from California and others from all over the world. This experience, in partnership with others, with experience in other fields, will be put together to start this tour company.
Nii Kpakpo, The Heritage Concept International is a management and consultancy organization that is established to preserve and promote the rich cultural heritage of Ghana and Africa. This company is committed to organize and host a cutting edge, organized and well mapped out professional events and programs inspired by the customs and traditions of the various parts of Ghana. This will be for both the young and the old.
We want to set it up in such a way that adults can bring in their families on vacations and to let the children see the sites all over Ghana, they read about in their textbooks.
Kpakpo the vision of the company is geared towards serving our community, country and continent by preserving and showcasing our cultural heritage whilst rekindling our passion for tourism. This also feeds into the mission of creating a lifetime expericence for people through our programs, projects and events uniquely blending tradition and modernity.
Nii Kpakpo Thompson, this is my pet project for the new year and i believe in the vision so much that i am ready to get others to see Ghana the way i see it from traveling all over the place. Furthermore i believe that Africa as a continent has a lot to offer in our traditions and it is important that we preserve these traditions in our own small ways and this is one of the ways in which we can.
The savanna has been good to me and i believe that with this project i am sure i have your support to be an advocate with others in this regard.
As our new commander in chief has emphasized, we need to be the change we want to see and like i always say, it begins with YOU!
Nii Kpakpo, till i write to you again i still remain
Your Cousin in Law,
