    Yesterday my class took a trip to the National Museum here in Accra, it was extremely interesting. Especially the exhibits that were focused on the Northern region.

After walking around this small but well laid out museum, we sat down and watched a movie detailing the differences in certain customs from region to region. The …

They have a spicy Jollof Rice, where the rice is cooked in tomato sauce as opposed to water. They also have Waakye which is rice and beans cooked together (very filling and delicious. Oddly enough almost every restaurant …

    One of my favorite things to do in Ghana, is to check the numerous beaches and resorts that are available. The southern border of the country is located along the Gulf of Guinea giving it alot access to the ocean and the beach. Coming from a complete land-locked state (Colorado) this is not something I am used too. Its also been something that I take complete advantage of. There are several …

It is aimed at alleviating the waste management problem that is so evident here in Accra. We convinced the women at the "Night Market" on campus to seperate food waste from plastic waste. We then began to compost this food waste. When …

We wanted to walk around and …

     I had the greatest time going to Morondava this past week with my group. It was the one week out the trip where we did not have to worry about academics and was able to relax. The hotel we stayed at was right on the beach so we could throw off our flip flops and walk bare foot from our bungalow to the sandy beach and watch the sunrise in …

    Hi everyone,  Although I’ve already done these giving back activities in the weeks passed, my intention was to talk about them all in one post as they are not very extensive. In our first week we were invited to an English class at Doshisha University. The students were really excited to meet us and had many questions such as why we chose to learn Japanese, and what are favorite foods, and hobbies …
