Sorry for not posting yesterday, the Internet connection at the hotel was off. Yesterday was also a very special day for Ghanaians, the day that the results of the election runoff were going to be announced. After visiting the DuBois Center, we were planning to head downtown for a tour, but had to redirect ourselves towards the outskirts due to the hectic traffic related to the elections. At the end of the day, it turned out that the presidential winner will be announced this coming Friday instead: one of the voting sections will have to re-cast their vote, and Ghanaians will have to wait for that to happen before they get to know the name of their president. Everybody is here is so excited and waiting for CHANGE.
Today, most of us went to the National Cultural Center, a fairground where to find arts and crafts for purchase... We had a chance to train our bargaining skills, and most of us scored decently well... Tonight we'll welcome the new year at a club called "Next Door" on the ocean. Happy New Year to all the parents and friends in the US from all of us!
