It’s off to work we go!

Monday, July 23, 2012

Thought of the day: “Man does not become rich unless he enriches others.”

Hi ho hi ho! It’s off to work we go! For breakfast we ate omelets along with oatmeal, toast, and orange juice. We enjoyed it.
When we arrived at the clinic, we listened to a speech about malaria. Gertrude is who Martine was paired up with and I paired with Charity. I was there for 4 hours and 4 patients were diagnosed with malaria. “Uncle Meow” Samuel picked us up from the clinic to go back to the guest house.

Lunch, Martine had chicken peanut soup and Margaret had beef peanut soup served with a loaf of white rice. I say loaf because it was shaped like a loaf of bread.

"Uncle Meow” takes us to the library at 4:00pm. It is a wonderful feeling to have little hands fitting into yours. We helped read books to everyone that stuck a book in our faces. Little hands touching my hair and the beads of my shirt.

 “Uncle Meow” takes us back to the guest house. While making our way over, Samuel would say “see you later” which meant we were walking in the wrong direction. We would always laugh at that.
For dinner we had French fries! With fried chicken and green salad. Yum yum!

Another good day in Ghana.
