Why do they have so many little shops in Ghana and what does blue fabric represent?

African Eyes Lesson:

Diane learned from her counselors today that in Ghana you don’t make things that the local businesses specialize in. For example if you need a pie, you don’t make it but you go to the pie shop. If you need soup, you buy it from the soup store. There are literally thousands of little shops here and the Africans support each other in their trades.

Also Diane just found out these beautiful blue Ghana print fabrics are worn on special days of gratitude - after a wedding, after a baby is born, after a healing. What a wonderful thought. She is going to bring home enough to to use on our Thanksgiving table every year. And she just might make a little blue fabric covered gratitude journal too.
