Here in Ghana, internet service can work one day but then be washed out by a heavy rain the next. Also, we often travel to locations that struggle with access to clean running water, so you can imagine that electric lines and internet connections fall a couple notches down on the priority level.
I mention this because today I will be loading up several blogs from the last week because the connection is really good today. Though the events described have occurred over the last 10 days, the postings are all coming together.
I apologize ahead of time for any typos that might slip through!
All the best from West Africa,
