The days are getting longer, times getting shorter.

I'm now a little over two weeks away from my departure to Accra, Ghana. I figured now would be a good time to get my blog going before I get wrapped up in all of the packing and preparing.

This summer I've been spending it at home in Sacramento, CA and although this 90 to 100 degree weather has been almost unbearable I have to remind myself that it's preparing me for the humid long day's in Accra. Santa Barbara beach days have spoiled me so I'm lucky to have this transition before being only 400 miles north of the equator.

Summer has been really great but I'm starting to get really excited to go abroad. I will be studying at the University of Ghana, living in the local dormitory and hopefully getting an internship of some sort. I hope to post on here often and share all these new life changing experiences.

In the mean time, thank you to all of you who have supported me in this amazing, once in a life time experience.
