Behind the Ananse Ntontan

I’m assuming you saw my previous post, about Siwatu Jewelry, their logo has an Ananse Ntontan over the “j” and that inspired my post signoff. It is my favourite Adinkra symbol. Ananse Ntontan means “spider’s web” the symbol stands for wisdom, creativity and the complexities of life. Ananse, the spider, is a well-known character in African folktales. (I found this so amusing because I’m scared of spiders.)

Wanderlust…

This post was inspired by Manija from A New Life Wandering.
The top 5 places in the world I want to visit are:

1) Paris, France
It has been my dream to go to Paris, from I chose to learn French over Spanish in Grade 7, one day I want to see the Eiffel Tower in person.

2) Tokyo, Japan
Autumne, Davia & I are supposed to get lost in Japan one day. I want to learn Japanese before I get there though.

3) Venice, Italy
I think the river instead of roads is so cool lol, I really want to ride in a gondola. (Hellooo Food.)

4) Ivory Coast, Africa
I’m a drummer and I would love to see the original roots of the extra-curricular activity that has taken over my heart, drumming is my passion and what better place to learn more about it than the motherland. (And Addis Ababa, Ethiopia while I’m there. P.S. it’s my post I can cheat & put 2-in-1 😛 )

5) Moscow, Russia
I’ve taken an interest in Russian because of the book series, Vampire Academy, so Russia is a place I’d love to visit as well.

What are your top 5 places you want to visit?
