week 4 & 5

Havent been able to update for a while because we've had a 5 day powercut! very annoying as means the fans dont work either so has been the hottest nights sleep i have ever had to endure!
i've been ill with a stomach bug-i went to the 'doctors' and they sent me home with a litre of lucazade telling me it would cure it... oh ghana.

Also this week Godwyn (age 1ish) has learnt to speak english and all he says is "im fine im fine" (ghanain philosophy that if you are not fine you will be by the end of the day) it is SO cute so im gunna try and video him saying it ha.,
after 4 days of trying to sleep in about 30c heat at Josh and Jayne decided to go back to green turtle lodge for the weekend! was so good to have running showers and good food and fans!! the journey there was horrific with a preacher on our bus who stood up and preached for the whole 4 hours... thankfully i didnt understand a word he was saying so just listened to my ipod after a while haha. also on our trotro the mate (conductor) couldnt fit in the tro tro as there were 24 people (usually have 18) so he sat on the roof for the hour and a half very bumpy ride!!
At green turtle i got up at 6am and went on a canoe trip by myself down the was so incredible and i felt like pocohontas....! i also got very sunburnt and bed bug bites all over my feet which are so friggiiiiiiinnn itchy!
Im gunna miss the kids and the tro tros and the friendly people (such as a man today who told me he liked my tan but i needed to dress like an african.. ha) also the sun/sunsets here are the most beautiful things i have ever seen.. the sun is 10x bigger than at home!
Also on our last night at green turtle i got up at about 2am and there was a crazy tropical lightening thunder and no rain but mad lightening...i sat on the beach for about 2 hours watching it and it was so incredible.
I only have 4 days left in Ghana before leaving for Johannesburg and am so emotional about leaving already, i love it here, and definetly want to return!
i miss everyone........ happy valentines day!!
