But the real African meal was at the Chief’s house. His wife prepared yams & a green mixture with eggs and shrimp. I was hesitant to eat it…because it didn’t look appetizing one bit, but it wasn’t all that bad & we thanked her for the delicious meal afterwards. The chief also bought Nick, Cole and I coke and hot peanuts…yum : )
That night, I got to give the five of them a little surprise from myself. I brought them tons of peanut butter, strawberry jelly, nutella, fig newtons, oreos, nuts, oatmeal bars, gummy candy, chocolate & ramen noodle soup. Their reactions made my whole journey with the heavy backpack completely worth it!
The next morning, Clara made us Ghanaian pancakes and bread with butter. And here I was thinking that I was going to be served something like the head of a fish so I would be starving my whole trip…I was obviously pleasantly surprised.
And even when I got back to the ship, we had just missed dinner. But soon after I got out of the shower (which felt amazing because I hadn’t taken one in three days) I heard a knock on the door. My roommate Trina opened it and I heard two guy’s voices asking for me. I turned around the corner and two of my friends were there holding a plate of food. What thoughtful guys.
