I’m moving up in the world.

This is my first smartphone, and I’m using it to write a blog post because the power has gone out again. I’m more connected in Ghana than I was in the States. And yet no running water (fine) and every month the power goes out for half the day over the course of about a week (note to self: build recurring power outages into schedule) and there are a lot of bugs in Africa (I try not to think of all the ‘non-traditional’ food items I’ve eaten unintentionally since arriving two and a half weeks ago) and for all this I’m grateful. It does make it awfully difficult to get any work done or sleep at night if the power is out (especially when the power is out) but on the other hand the pineapples are always ridiculously delicious. And its mango season too! I miss broccoli.
