Once arrived at the crowded Accra airport, University of Stirling phD student Emilie Devic and commercial tilapia farm manager Nicolas welcomed me and picked me up in an hotel nearby for spending my first night in the capital.

The maggot farm was stuck in the middle of rice and onions fields, where farmers harvesting there grant you as stranger “Obrowny” (“people made of corn”, because the corn color in Africa is white instead of yellow).

Once we got there Emilie made a breathing training to four Ghanaian researchers, explaining what was daily done in the farm and the fascinating biology of Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens).
In the late afternoon we went to the village of Kpong, a pretty and quite village on the way of the fish-farm where we spent the night after a delicious Ghanaian dinner.
