8 July 2012
Sunday was a whole lot of sitting around. The five of us at Ish had plans to go to the beach, but unfortunately, the weather preferred we didn’t. We instead spent time with Nigel, who showed us some of his favorite Ghanaian artists. I have to start making a list of all the new music I’ve heard here! It’s catchy and fantastic like American club music, but with Ghanaian influence.
While we were debating what new place we might try for dinner, the rest of our group arrived home! I was grinning like an idiot; I missed everyone so much. We all finally settled on christening the return of our obroni family at a British-style pub that Cara and Leslie (alumni, summer 2011!) recommended to me, called Honeysuckle. I could not have asked for a better night. We’re talking a pesto chicken burger with fries and veggies, a round of shots on the house, spontaneously breaking into song (American Pie!), being apologized to by an old drunk Brit for using the ladies' room, and celebrating the 21st birthday of my incredibly lovely friend, Isabeeellll!
I know I am going to look back on the nights like this with the greatest nostalgia. While I am looking forward to coming home, it’s going to take my heart a little while to recover from leaving the wonderful people I have met. I’m thinking obroni family reunion, Ghana 2013? ;)
