We can't believe the number of Hawks fans we see as we journey around Kumasi

Our landlady Grace and friend Collins pound Fufu.
Trisha sells apples at a busy intersection here in Kumasi.  Of all the Seahawk fans we've met here, she has the best smile and the best apples.
I don't know who these guys are but they were so friendly and also happy to display the 12th man flag that I couldn't resist taking their photo.
Victoria stopped in the middle of cooking banku to show me her Hawks flag.
She is a teenage nanny and housekeeper.
Our friend Andy is the neighborhood IT expert and helps us with our computer problems when he isn't cheering on the Hawks.
Fauzio on the right operates our favorite produce market.  Their 12th man flag was proudly displayed between the cassava and the eggplant. 

Our friend, 13 year old Rebecca returning from school, is a big Seahawks fan.
Rebecca is a nanny to Emma and her 2 brothers.
Our favorite furniture makers, Collins and Osei, proudly display their flag.

Emma used to be afraid of us but when we brought out the 12th man flag, she decided we were okay.

Calvin gets the award for being the youngest and cutest Seahawk fan in the neighborhood. 


  1. HAHAHAHA WOW! Quite the fan club!

  2. Ok so my question is....did you hand everyone a banner to hold then take their picture, or did they already have those? :) I totally agree-the last picture is definitely the cutest!! :)
