We are walking 3-6 miles a day-back and forth to the schools. But, the food is so delicious, there is no way I will lose weight! Wednesday morning begins with convocation complete with singing (alot) and several drums=singing and clapping is robust. Then, a short sermon about a traffic light as your conscience. They took up an offering from the students. I put in two cedis. Then, I was asked to bless the offering. It is a great honor so I could not refuse. Well, praying in public is not something I am used to. But, I said the right things apparently. Then, there was a special song where I was supposed to dance! What a great laugh the Ghanaians must have had. This is all before 8 AM.
We are working on college words-so far, tenacious and reluctant.
Also, I introduced the word :NOVEL. The students did not know this word.
We discussed the elements of a novel and I began reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. We will continue tomorrow.
Currently, we are all at The Volta Hotel which has a wireless network. Beautiful view and a bar!! Have the first ice since leaving the plane.
We have two computers for 14 people and everyone wants to use it.
More later and I have lots of pictures!! No time to download pics yet.
Going to Cape Coast to see slave castles this weekend-taking two vans-all are going!
