Some most memorable experiences while here
- Trying the local foods, Kenkey is the worst! Banku isn't too bad and Omo Tuo is my favorite.
- Backpacking all the way up to Northern Ghana. We planned it and executed it all on our own and it was an adventure I will surely never forget.
- The 2 adoptions that I got to see. Adoptions are very rare and these were the only two I've heard of since I've been here.
- Peeing on the side of the road just like the locals :) It's great to be a guy
- Going to the beach with the little ones.
- Getting Kwame (the brand new orphan) to come out of his shell.
These are just a very few of the most memorable experiences. I'm excited to go home but at the same time I know I'm going to want to go back asap! I have to jump right into the swing of things and the fast passed life which I'm not too excited about. But hopefully, with any lucky, I will be able to take the lessons I've learned here and apply them to my life back home and be a better person because of them.
