Our Favourite Radio Correspondent

Our favourite radio voice, hands down is NPR's Africa correspondent. Although she's reporting today from Mali, she's been in Senegal and Ghana recently, and the way she says "Dakar" or "Accra" when signing off makes it seems like it's the most exciting place in the world to be and she couldn't be more excited to be there. But her name always eludes us. Is it Olivia D'Aqosta? Ophelia Dakustan.

Turns out it's Ofeibea Quist-Arcton, and she's from Ghana, educated in Britain, which is exactly what she sounds like. And she looks pretty much exactly like I pictured her.

Surprisingly a quick internet search did not turn up any other Ofeibeas.
