Four Days in Ghana [Jul. 26th, 2006|12:33 am]

1.2 million Ghanian cedis! Fistful o'cash!




I look like I'm going to elbow two guys in the face.







My best Ghana pictures are of my colleagues, but I don't feel right posting their pictures here. Fortunately I have no qualms about posting pictures of strangers! This was a fabulous trip. The whole crew just clicked (Click!) right away, and we had breakfast together every morning and went out to fancypants-but-fabulous restaurants every evening. (And yes, even an Irish pub. Whaddya expect? They are everywhere and irresistable.) During the day we lay sprawled by the pool in the equatorial sun; when I came back to Dubai, a friend remarked I looked like "a little Puerto Rican girl."

I know I've said it before but foreign cities just seem so much more interesting in pictures than American cities do (foreign to me personally, obviously).

I like this set of pictures. All of the people look so happy. And the food is making me hungry even though I don't think there's a single thing there that I could or would eat! :) (Well, a tomato and some french fries perhaps.)

The colors of clothing, buildings, etc. are all great in those!

I've gotten really used to the tan/beige/brown/grey/dirt color of basically everything in the middle east.

People really do forget just how good eggs really are.

Somebody said something to me once, regarding fried egg sandwiches, that eating eggs means, "I'm going to live another day." To this day I always remember that each time I eat eggs.

Do you know my little brother? He was KHS class of '98. He eats upward of six eggs a day, I kid you not.
