I didn’t really want to post so many pictures about my trip. As people have continued to ask for pictures, this is my compromise. A blog post full of pictures. Somehow it feels less overwhelming than posting everything directly to Facebook. The trip and the experiences were happy and exciting but also personal. The world doesn’t need to see most of it.
I feel like I should have been nervous to make this trip. I finally was able to see David after over a year apart. I was meeting his family. It was my first time anywhere in Africa. So much was going to be new. I did recognize it was a really big step, but in no way was I nervous about going.
I was a little nervous when I was stopped in Shanghai because my itinerary showed me arriving in Accra and my visa showed I was allowed to travel to Ghana. Eventually I got translation and was able to explain Accra is the capital of Ghana.
I arrived without problems. I had 12 days filled with new experiences. Though many things were different than I even knew to expect, it was so clearly a trip planned by God. Here is just a small window into my time there.
