So I've arrived in Accra. Getting off the plane, I was hit by a wave of humid, earthy air. My new home smells good. Even at the airport. Customs was a breeze. I was told my 1 year visa is actually only good for two months, at which point I have to get my NGO to renew. Efficient bureaucracy at work.
Baggage claim wasn't as friendly. Only one of my bags arrived with the plane. Guess what it had in it? All my clothes, contact lenses, glasses, anti-malarials, toiletries and footwear. At least I still have my video equipment. Even if I can't see, I can at least record for future viewing.
So, now off to visit the JHR office and get some supplies, including a cell.
Enjoying myself, and thinking of all of you.
