Here’s a selfie of me and Meghan as we were both trying to take a picture of the lizard in our room. The lizard’s name is Daisy and she eats all of our ants and bugs so we like her. This was my 10th day in Ghana and it was rough but good. This semester will be quite the challenge but I’m determined to ride it out and be a better person for it. We’ve already encountered major issues with our living conditions and have had to leave for a few days while adjustments are made. Our temporary lodging is like a paradise though! Flushing toilets and a fan!! Plus no mold or bed bugs and I haven’t seen even one cockroach!! Yay!! Classes are interesting and the food is starting to sit better with me. Really loving the plantains and the fresh fruit and abundance of coconut flavored things. The weather has been great too. Plus, the ladies that work at the night market we visit daily have been so sweet and welcoming, they remembered my name!  I”m just ready to settle in and I hope our hostel fixes the issues while we’re gone so we can finally settle in and really start feeling at home here in Accra, Ghana. 
Anyway, sending my love from West Africa. Xoxo

Probably some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken.

Rented some tradition wooden plank boats used by fishermen in Ghana and met some young Ghanaians who definitely showed us a thing or two how it’s done. Thankful I was able to wade out and capture some awesome shots of these guys.

Greetings from Ghana!! This first week was hard but so good. I don’t know how much I’ll be on here so I’m sorry guys but I don’t have wifi most of the time. I’m having trouble with the spicy foods here but I like it all. Lots of fresh fruit so I’m happy. K, bye guys!
