It's been a long time and I have no good excuses other then I never felt like sitting down and actually writting something out. It's easy for me to put a bunch of pictures up with fabulous captions and count that as a blog but a while back my camera got stolen : ( and then replaced by my lovely mommy : ), so there was a bit of lag time in between where I didn't take any pictures.
However, now that I have a camera again I still haven't taken that many pictures. I going to blame it on hot season and not wanting to look sweaty in every photo but you all know that it's pure laziness on my part. But come on hot season is the worst. I'm lucky if I am active at all from the hours of 10 am - 5 pm.
But anyways, Not much new stuff has been happening lately. I had my Close of Service conference a couple of weeks ago. It helps to ready all the volunteers that are leaving this summer to reintegrate into America and hopefully find a job or get into the college program they want. Since I'm doing a third year, this con. was full of information that I will need but won't use until next year so it was a wee bit boring to me but still great because I got to see all my stage (group 22!!!) and hang out in ac with a pool for three days. Always a great break from village.
Got to go, but promise pictures that next time and a longer read. Later!

View from the top of a place we went in Cape Coast called the Money Sanctuary. Run by a awesome Dutch couple.
Me on the Canopy Walkway in Cape Coast. It's a rope walkway through the canopy : ) Very High up and very cool.
This was the first place we stayed at. Hans Cottage Botel in Cape Coast. That is their lagoon type area and dinner area.
Funny enough, we too this photo once we had left Ghana and were back in the BF.
A walkway shot. It really is that skinny and up that high.
Christmas at the Desert Rose included a pig roast. Really delicious. This place is run by a Swedish couple who are so great.
This is the beach at the Desert Rose. Very shelly and with a current you could swim in without to much fear of getting pulled out to sea.
This is Diana and me at Christmas dinner, waiting for the piggy.
This is me and Diana again, we are attempting to take a cute shot and I think it turned out good
This is my traveling group on X-mas morning at the Desert Rose after we did our gift exchange. Left to Right: Jade has on a necklace, Diana as well, Trent a bracelet, and me a rosary.
This is the view from the castle in Cape Coast. Just enjoy it. It was even better in person.
Me in Busua with a beer and a kitten. Pretty good day!
View from Busua
Our cabin in Busau at the Alaska Beach Resort. Pretty adorable. My favorite beach area.
I hope you enjoyed the ramdon mix of vacation photos. It should be mentioned that I too maybe one of these, the rest come from the lovely Jade and Diana. Thanks for a great trip!

This one and the next are pictures of the new pagnes I have outfits made out of.
This is Me!!! in another new outfit
This is bissap juice that was frozen when I bought it and thus delicious and really nice when it s hot.
This is a new wall hanging I got during the Peace Corps fair in September. One of my fellow volunteer's counter part made it.
This is the lone plant that rainy season grew in my yard that wasn't deemed a weed and thus left alone to grow. It is Sorgho, I think, which is used here to mae lots of stuff.
Ths is the gate that totally repaired and made perfect after it went through raniy season it was super busted but now...Perfect.
My neighbors use my cort yard to dry stuff and in this picture they are using it to dry corn.
