I have finally seen my site! I hiked Mt. Afadjato, which was quite a hike. My legs still hurt! I visited the chief, and he gave me some local gin, called Apateshi. It's tradition to take a shot at special occasions, and to pour some out on the floor for the ancestors. After seeing the chief, my counterpart and I went to Tagbo Falls with a tourist group from Germany and Accra. We were sweating like crazy, because the alcohol, and the other tourists must have thought we were crazy, because the walk is not difficult at all.
My house is amazing, I have a bookcase, bed, and desk already. And I have access to the kitchen, which I found to be great after two months of not eating American food. Believe it or not, I really enjoyed cooking for myself this past week. You have to remember, I have had no say in the meals prepared for me in Maase. I figured out how to make onion rings, stir-fry, and one-pot-pasta.
I'm very excited to finally move in, the people are very friendly, and I am already getting excited about working on developing the tourism.
