Child Fear of the Obruni

I had the most unexpected response from babies. Babies of Accra (the biggest city in Ghana) were scared to tears of me. However, the children in the small villages took to me instantly. This was the baby to instantly like me and come to me. She even took to playing a blinking game with me. Everytime she saw me, she would get excited and smile. She was a breath of fresh air. I would have expected that the kids in the villages would have been scared of me and the children of the city would have not been scared...but I've been reminded you should never make assumptions.
