Tuesday night the lights went out during the day and stayed off all night, into Wednesday. The water was cut off too, Ghana is still developing and these things happen. I had to use the fountain behind the house to fill a basin to bathe and whatever reserve I could get from the faucet. It was a miserable night without air conditioning.
My fan has a phone charging station and runs on battery LED but that soon gives out too, and may not last the entire night. I will purchase a generator if I choose to stay in Ghana.
I have three months left on my year residency, which runs out in June and three months left on my tenancy here. I can choose to renew and possibly move to another rental, or I can return home to the USA. I have grown to love Ghana, and have made friends and family here. I have my dog Sankofa, whose a lot of work, but he’s a good dog though and I love him. He also has made friends here at the estate.
I don’t actually know the dogs name I just call him Baby he’s a sweetheart. He loves me as much as he does Sankofa.
I still don’t have health insurance either and have to have my vision checked and now I have a chipped tooth as well.
