Ghana, part three.  
Aaaand another short note from a warm, sweaty Ghana-visitor. Gotten pretty used to this place now, but it's still hard sometimes and I still long for Swedish things. Mostly Swedish food. Or, well, regular food. Not necessarily Swedish. But today I got pizza, which is real, fairly good food for the first time in a week. I have been hungry for a week, it's ridiculous. And then they give us food and I just can't eat it, because it's the same thing over and over again.

But the kids are cute and we're having quite a lot of fun. I've gotten quite used to the flies, the toilet, and the bucket baths. Not something I'll miss once I leave, but I can live with it.

Yesterday it was a big tropical storm here, with insane amounts of water, thunder, and strong winds. I've never seen a storm like it, so that was quite cool.

Now we're away for the weekend, to visit Cape Coast and the rain forest and do a "canopy walk" tomorrow morning. Will be back to the orphanage on Sunday for the last week - and then suddenly I'm going home again...

I'm glad to see you're surviving, I guess you do get used to things, but I can quite understand you won't miss them.

I'm really sorry to hear you've been hungry :-(

Keep taking care and keeping safe.

I am very glad to hear you are continuing to adjust - though it is very hard immersing yourself in a completely different culture. Luckily, you will get to have regular and Swedish food again soon!

It's amazing all of the things you get to see and experience. I hope you continue to stay safe.
