    I don't have classes Wednesdays and Fridays, and today I don't have to work in the evening either. My daily life without the structures of school and work are very relaxed here--Mexican style. I woke up to a fairly cloudy day and breakfasted entomatadas verdes which are tortillas soaked in green salsa and served with queso fresco and sour cream and aguacate (avocado). Then I went to retrieve my laundry …

    Mexican independence day is truly something to behold. I had so much fun and I loved all the tradition behind it. People would ask me what Americans do for the 4th of July and I had to tell them that we don't really have a national tradition other than watching fireworks. Everyone does something different, and even my family does something different every year. Well, to continue the story, after …

    Worst. Sunburn. Ever. OUCH! They weren't lying when they said that the African sun is different than the American sun. I have never had a sun burn like this in my life. Hopefully it will turn into a nice tan and not peel completely off :) Today was a great day at school. They are finally doing what they said they would do, assign each volunteer a few students to help …

  • Feeling a bit guilty....

    Pure relaxating...and a bit of a tease! That pretty much sums up my weekend at Adomabo Beach Resort. It is absolutely gorgeous here! Its definitely a tease. I think being here has made all of us a bit homesick. It feels like we are worlds away from our projects and our homestays. We have been eating delicious (very westernized) food, staying in cute little huts, enjoying the sandy beaches and …

  • I should probably keep my day job....

    If you know me, you know that I have absolutely NO rhythm. I don't dance, I'm not very musically inclined and yeah, it's just not my thing. So, you can imagine how entertaining it was while I was learning how to drum and dance....African style. It was a bit embarrassing at first, we had quite a few people watching us (we were learning at a very popular restaurant) but after …

  • The Village Life of a Foreigner

    Crazy 2 weeks of ups and downs, new foods, new faces and new unforgettable experiences! After leaving COSA I traveled to a village about 20 minutes away by car called “Maetaman.” My host mom speaks English and occasionally you will run across someone who knows basic conversational English but other than that everyone speaks Thai or a special dialect they speak in Chiang Mai province they call …

    This past week, Oaxaca has been transformed into a sea of red, green, and white! In the Zocalo (the plaza) they have hung red and green and white lights, everyone has a flag on their door or on their car, the school hung a giant red, green, and white banner--it's everywhere. I especially love the lights, they strung lights above some of the streets in the center and it looks …

    Today was probably one of the best days I've had since I arrived in Ghana. I'm feeling pretty great right now :)I didn't get a chance to blog last night because I was at ProWorld with the other volunteers. Geoff and Kieran made dinner and it was delicious. It almost felt like we were back at home having Olive Garden, yummy :) I definitely miss certain foods!After dinner I met …

    It's been a few days since I lasted blogged. I'm trying really hard to write every day because I don't want to forget anything about this time. With that being said, I've been sick the past 2 days and went to bed right when I got home from school yesterday and slept until 6am this morning. I didn't go to school today and I'm home resting until I have to head to …
