It’s the little things

When the customs officer let’s you into Ghana even though you have 2 passports
When you only have 10 bug bites when you wake up instead of 25
When you don’t get malaria
When the water and electricity are both working
When you can buy a calling card at a small hut on the side of the road to talk to your family
When your work place changes your call time from 5:30am to 8:00am
When you’re not expected to eat burning hot soup with your fingers
GHANA IS BEAUTIFUL. I do not even know how to describe it. We have been busy going through orientation, moving into our homestays, and finding out where we will be working for the next 6 weeks. The food is delicious, besides the burning hot soup you eat with your fingers (but even that is pretty good): rice, beans, tomato sauce, lots of chicken, kasava, banku, phuphu, and plantain!! We have, as you can tell, been appreciating all the little things that we are used to back at home but are different here.
I promise these blogs will be more put together at some point, but today I rushed to an internet cafe after work and spent most of my time posting pictures.
