This is a year of firsts for me. This is my first time travelling outside of North America and this is my first ever blog! I am in Ghana to teach at Sonrise Christian High School. I have found the people here to be wonderful. They are all very friendly. The food isn't bad. I don't mind fufu but I have trouble swallowing it without chewing. I'm not fond of kenkey but it is edible.
My first week here I was very homesick. It didn't help that I caught a cold. Once I started exploring a little bit I started getting over it.
I have been teaching Christian Religious Studies for three weeks now. The kids are great although I am finding that they struggle to understand what I am saying at times. I talk way too fast! I am having trouble learning Ewe. I know a few words but it goes so fast.
I did get to go on a field trip to a botanical garden just south of here. It was beautiful. I am looking forward to doing more sight seeing. I would love to visit some of the game reserves. I also want to go to Cape Coast.
I am looking forward to this year and the many more adventures to come.
