Here's the beautiful "African Sky"
Hey people of the world who happen to check out my adventure in Ghana:

I recently was reviewing all the blogs I had written last school year and got super reminiscent. I also realized I never found the time to give a farewell to my beloved home in GHana. I think I was more than ready to come home at the time I was leaving and I know for sure I did not feel sentimental about the place by any means.

Africa, Ghana, the developing world in general can wear you down in ways you would not believe. I was tired of being hot, tired of being harassed, tired of those damn ant-bites every day, and tired of the food. I needed to go home.

But now I'm home, and I miss my red-red! I was at a store the other day, and the cashier had an all too familiar accent. I didn't want to be politically incorrect, but I would tell he was from Africa.

Since it's about that time I am with the Night Market girls, in my COWGIRL USA costume all ready for the International Students' Assoc. costume party!
to Africa, I would have felt weird about making distinctions about people based on their skin color, but that is an everyday thing for the average Ghanaian, and besides, I feel okay about it because after traveling and living elsewhere, I am able to recognize the different colors of our skin as the universes' palette. ANYWAY, I couldn't help but ask the man if he was Africa and which country. He replied, "Ghana," coyly, but with a big white smile. Ahhhh brother Francis and I talked and talked, about Ghanaian food, about the course he completed at Legon Campus and had some words in TWI. Wow! I miss Ghana!!

Well, I think I am going to make it a point to keep writing about Ghana, to share my experiences and pictures with the world, until I get tired of it. Yes, I've been back for a good 4-5 months now, but looking at my blogs, I can see there are so many tales that didn't get told. If this website is looked at by someone who was deciding whether or not to go, all I can hope is that my blog gets read and they go. It will change
