Nifty envelope from Postcrossing pen pal in Ghana

On the heels of the nifty decorated envelope I received from Ukraine recently, here's an envelope all the way from the Republic of Ghana, the second-most populous country in West Africa. My pen pal Lee mailed this around Aug. 2, so it took a little over a month to arrive. (Not bad, in my estimation.) 

His letter included a wonderful collection of ephemera, including information on historic "mammy trucks," Kente cloth, Kaolin clay, the ginger-and-tamarind beverage lamugin, and Adinkra symbols. So much interesting stuff to learn more about!

Also, Lee included some dandy stamps...
