My mother and Anne have come and gone. I had an amazing time sharing a bit of my life here in Ghana, as well as traveling and discovering new places along the 3 week journey. As we traveled around the country, we poured energy and life into fellow Peace Corps projects. I really missed my mom. One year is the longest I have gone without seeing my mother. Mother and Anne have arrived safely back in the States, and are now back to moving at the pace of life at home. I hope they enjoyed their trip as much as I enjoyed having them here. It is nice to have people to share this with in the flesh.
I want to thank both my mom and Anne on behalf of everyone here for the textbooks, pencil sharpeners, and computers. That’s right Anne! COMPUTERS!! I picked them up in Accra last week and am in the process of setting them up! With the help of some friends *cough* (Anne), I have been able to purchase 4 computers to start up a brand new ICT lab for the kids at the Volta School for the Deaf. I can not wait to see the kids faces when they start arriving at school. They should start to show up on campus around September 14th. I will find a camera to take pictures for posting. Meanwhile, here are some more photos from the tail end of Momma Aku and Auntie Yawas trip to Ghana:
