It was an early start yesterday as we headed to our adventure weekend at Cape Coast. The bus journey went rather quick considering it was around six hours drive in total, with a stop at Accra mall to allow us to take out money as well as buy drinks and snacks. When we arrived at…

None of the pupils wanted to write the update for Friday so you’re stuck with me again!

Today I decided to try my hand at teaching. For the past couples of days, I’ve been focussed on the brick making – my competitive side has adored the challenge of beating the previous days work – but today called for a new experience. Elle and I joined forces and set our sights on classroom…

After a long day of travelling I slept like a baby. My only complaint is that was too cold! I woke up at around 4am and had to turn my air conditioning off and get under the covers…not a complaint I expected to make in Africa. We woke up around 7 and met for breakfast…
