Bonjour friends and family
Africa is a special place ...
the culture is so very different from ours. They are touchy and love to share things.... like things you wouldn't share they share and yea also be prepared to have people looking over your shoulder too ;)
Here in Ghana it is very very hot I don't sleep with a blanket. or even a sheet. unless its below 31.5 degrees C which it has and so I've gotten cold and put it on haha. but it usually doesn't. or to defend against the evil mosquitos. yea we had an outbreak and the American elders got hit hard well me and elder Alexander he had over 70 I just had 20.
The food here is spicy, why to make you sweat or as the chef told me she said you wouldn't like it if it wasn't spicy she's funny. I still think its to make you sweat so your body will evap the sweat and you cool off however.... its too stinking humid for that to be effective.
For the showers I shower three times a day and I've gone through two whole bars of soap !!!!!!!! I think that is crazy. Yes I take cold showers but it is totally by choice it could be hot but its too hot to take hot showers.
Water I drink 2+ litters of water a day that helps with the food adjustment and your body coping with the heat. Our water is from an African company is delivered by a truck like the sparkletts truck. The MTC uses lots of water.
We have an hour sports time at 330 and we can ride bikes play soccer basket ball or chase the cool lizards. If I can get the videos to send I will.
I love the emails they are awesome, I wish I could respond to them all but I don't have enough time.... cuz I'm trying to learn French. haha
Sundays hear are really cool we watch a bunch of church videos and go to meetings but its pretty relaxing. I went to the temple today and escorted my comp it was pretty awesome it was in French so I had an English head set but I made it so I could hear the French and English it was cool.
