Description:This story was recorded in Amedzofe at a meeting with 10 elderly people. The 10 people were divided into two groups and we talked with each group for an hour. In the first session Sammy interviewed the first five people about what has changed since they were young and what they think Amedzofe will be like in the future. In the second session, Sammy asked the other five people to tell their life stories and then asked if there were other stories or folk tales they could tell.
