Eating With My DAD!

Eating With My DAD!

Thank you very much to 23andMe for sponsoring this video. Learning about my ancestry and discovering some of my taste preferences, and comparing them with my Dad, was fascinating. He and I both had a great time meeting and eating. We happen to be traveling in Ghana, and my Dad happened to be in Nairobi, Kenya for a few days having some meetings, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity, to meet my Dad. Luckily it all worked out smoothly!

Accra, Ghana

Waakye – 8 GHC ($1.80) – Waakye is a popular Ghanaian food / meal, and that’s what we started the day with. You get rice and beans, a number of other starches, and some tomato sauce stew and meats, all piled high into a leaf bowl. It was delicious!

Makola Market – Next we visited Makola Market, the largest and most energetic market in Accra. It’s a must visit, to see the energy and life at the market.

The Accra Arts Center – Finally, we stopped off at the Accra Arts Center to buy a few things before leaving in at night.

Accra to Nairobi – We had a late night flight, and we landed early at sunrise to cool Nairobi!

After checking into a hotel just for 1 night, we took a quick hour nap, and then jumped into a taxi to go meet my Dad who was staying at a guesthouse.

It was great to see my Dad and at the guesthouse we compared our ancestry and our taste preference.

Then we went to go eat some Kenyan food, which was a highlight. Now do you know where I got my love for food from?

Java House coffee – Finally, as you already know, I have a tendency to enjoy caffeine, and so does my Dad. So it was only right to stop for a cup of coffee to finish.

Thank you for watching, and again, a big thank you to for sponsoring this video.

  1. I actually plan my visa runs based on your channel. I'm also married and based in Bangkok. We've enjoyed a lot of good food all around Asia thanks to you. Haven't considered going as far as Africa, but this episode is leading me that way. Food looks delicious.

  2. You both in my opinion, are giving your son THE BEST education ever. Traveling. Learning different cultures. WTG! My parents did the same thing with me. I am the youngest of 8 kids. Late in Life child. I had a ball traveling with them.

  3. Clearly you got the slim genes from your dad!……what a well traveled and diverse family you have….I just watched another video where you met up with your sister and brother in law in california!

  4. You should start series with your dad ? your dad gives great comments about food and culture and all stuffs! Its soo good to see him ! May he have best health ❤️

  5. I'm from Nairobi!! I feel so adequately represented! Except most of us rarely eat with the hands coz we're usually on the go. However it is also very fulfilling to eat with the hands. The eating does take longer and the food tastes better. Love this channel!

  6. Why on God's green Earth, would 2000 people take the time to watch such a delightful video, between a father and a son, only to THUMBS DOWN? I am really trying to understand the mental psyche of the less than average YouTube watcher!

    This video, as per usual, is beautiful! Mark Weins, thank you for allowing us to tour the world through your experiences. What a blessing it is, to also take your wife and child on every adventure. May God continue to go before you, and keep you safe. I Love how you show brotherly Love, in so many languages. It warms my heart, as I watch you share a bowl or plate of food with your brothers and sisters. The purity of your heart, translates all over the world!!!

    As for those unhappy watchers, FIND JESUS and fast! ??
