    I’ve shaken hands with someone who has shaken hands with Louis Armstrong!! I was visiting the old slave fort in Kormantse (in Ghana) and the guide said that he’d met Louis on two separate occasions (as that is where Louis had traced his ancestry back to, and he apparently used to travel back to Ghana to get a sense of his origins). Only problem was that the guide kept on referring to him as “Neil Armstrong” !!
