fabric here, fabric there, fabric fabric everywhere

Accra (the capital and big city in Ghana) is filled with luscious fabric. Everywhere you go many of the women are wrapped in the most amazing prints I've ever seen. A few yards of fabric seems to have many different purposes, it can be a skirt, a shawl, a dress, or a baby carrier. Brilliant.

You can buy lots of fabric at the Makola market. Its like the Mall of America for Accra. Stall after stall of merchants, many of them selling fabric.

among other things...........

I like the fabric best, miles and miles of fabric...............

We won't discuss how much I bought. Yet anyway.
