Nature

The final trip

Hi everyone,
I am little sad that this is my final field trip and it marks the end of this whole trip as well. In two weeks I will be saying bye to all the other Obroni's, my new Ghanaian friends, the staff at ISH #1, and to my family of frogs under my window. What I won't be missing is the numerous amount of lizards who like to frequent room number 81, or the cold showers. I will miss the weather here because what I understand is that in my home town the weather has been in the hundreds. Anyway I am very thankful for this time here in Ghana to help me spread my wings, realize some things, and the growth spurt.

I have accomplished a lot here in Ghana in such a short time that this will always be in my memory bank and processed through out my life time. Mother Africa has given birth to a new woman with a different outlook on life. Life is to be enjoyed savored life the finest cut of meat that you will ever have. Never will I chew on life in a hurry any more, I will take the time to take in every spice and recognize it for what it is; after all a pepper is a pepper, it's hot. We as human can learn alot from the animals; meaning today we went to a wildlife reserve in the town of Hohoe, this is in the Volta region, which is in Ghana. We were suppose to see baboons but they were way up in the mountains on a rock looking at us like: those dumb humans don't they know it is going to rain, they had better take cover. The guide told us as soon as it got cloudy today that the baboon went into the mountains. This earth has a lot to offer man we just have to grab life by the horns and hold on tight or it will just leave us. The animals have the sense of danger and flee from it.

I don't have a clue why I did this field trip, when I never signed up for this to begin with. What ever it was that made em do it I am glad that I did it for the experience more than anything. I got the chance to see antelope and ostriches, but thank God not snakes, bats, and scorpions; yeah we were told they would be on this leg of the race. God take care of babies and fools; this fool got babies to get back to. I hope you enjoy the pictures that I have uploaded as, much as I have enjoyed taking them. The pictures that I couldn't take, I am very sorry that I could't take them but I will always remember the moment. We were on the bus today and I heard Whitney Huston's song The Body guard 'I will always love you,' and this is how I felt about Africa. I will always love Africa and all that it stands for in my book; not how another portrays it.

I am very drowsy and I am going to upload these pictures and get some rest; Insha Allah, may the peace and blessing of God be upon you and your family. If it is God's will, I will get back to you on the flip side. Ghanna girl is forcefully shutting her blue eye, good night all you wonderful people.
