Where I stayed
Writing is tough and computers slow, quick observances:
1. everyone carries everything on their heads, some of the craziest - platter of live snails as large as salad plates, basket of live chickens, basket of yams the size of a man's thigh, fruit, water, etc
2. i've felt very out of place the last day, it's incredible how different it is here - we lose electricity at least once a day for hours often at night, cars drive insanely, their seem to be no real traffic signs/signals - but today I'm starting to feel more at home
4. fresh pineapple cut on the street tastes delicious! I'll never enjoy pineapple in the states again.
Heat is incredible - after one day i'd had it with my hair and this morning got it all cut off! All the Ghanians thought I was crazy cause they love white people's hair, but I love it! It will grow back - Lisa said it looks good, but I think she's just being nice :) It's so much cooler. I'll send pictures when I can! Lisa is a much more experienced traveler than me which has made everthing much easier - we travel well together. Everything is great - I'm loving the adventure.
Love to you all - touch base again when I can.
