·Although I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here
in Ghana, I do find great excitement in things that remind me of home. The
interns all gathered tonight with our coordinators at One Africa, a restaurant
in town that has amazing American food. We all look forward to our nights at
one Africa because of the great food and not to mention, its beautiful view of
the ocean. While I awaited for my salad (very hard to find here), me and Charli
had some adventures, as usual. Of course, they were not with out struggle.
Before we set off on an adventure to the ocean, I decided to try and conquer
one of the many hammocks near our table. Shelby climbed into one like a champ
and rested peacefully. My encounter was not as seamless. I plopped into the
mesh hammock very ungracefully and quickly became entangled in the netting.
Once free of the net, I looked over at my counterpart and saw Shelby resting on
her stomach, swaying away. Lets just say I never did make it over to my
stomach. After enough hardship, me and Charli took off our shoes, logically,
and headed to climb the rocks at the oceans edge. Oh, and not to worry, Mama
Theactrice was close behind to snap photos and make sure we did not injure
ourselves too badly. During our climb over the damp rocks we discovered
numerous creatures. We saw barnacles stuck on the sides of rocks, tadpoles in
pools of water, hermit crabs, larger blue crabs, and even black sea urchins.
After doing the Jungle Book’s “Bear Necessities” walk across the top of the
rocks, we headed back for food. We all ate in silence as we engulfed our
delightful dinner. Then it was off to our homestays for a good nights rest.
