So I'm spending the day in Kumasi, ostensibly to get some work done organizing a beekeeping training, but really for a single, solitary purpose: upload photos. I want you all to appreciate that this is literally an all day job, even with the relatively reliable internet of the KSO. Flickr wants my Yahoo Account info, which I don't remember, and Photobucket is down for maintenance, so I think they're going to be on Facebook. However, it looks like Facebook has added an "outsiders" access feature, so I'll post the URL on the blog.
As my Peace Corps life in Ghana becomes less something I'm enduring and more something I'm enjoying, it feels more important to share. This blog seems have become a way of maintaining what Malcolm Gladwell called in The Tipping Point "loose ties" with all y'all that I really care about a lot, but am not going to see very often for a while. I get random updates of what's going on in your lives, either by email or Facebook or whatever, and I want to trade you some context as well, so that later when we meet back up we can strengthen that loose tie again and comfortably catch up over a few beers.
So here's the first batch, they're all from our Pre-Service Training October to December 2008. There's a second batch of more recent ones I'll try to get up this afternoon, but just in case here's the first batch.
