Every Wednesday, we are required to take our Methoquin pills which help prevent malaria. For this reason we always look forward to Wednesdays, because these pills have interesting side effects. Usually used for entertainment purposes, Methoquin can cause some pretty freaky dreams. For me, it usually results in nightmares, but, I even look forward to those, because, let's face it, it can be quite boring, sometimes.
In other entertainment news, us obrunis still tend to be the favored form of entertainment among the Ghanaians. They like to ask us where we are going, and they like to tell us when we are going to wrong way.
My favorite form of entertainment in Ghana has got to be watching Ghanaian movies. Last night I watched one about a pair of star-crossed lovers: She was blind and he loves her, but his family doesn't approve. It was classic Romeo and Juliet. They prayed about it, and finally got married. All was good until his ex-girlfriend appeared on the scene. I'm not going to spoil the ending for you, in case you ever get to see it. (Plus I couldn't finish the movie, it was that awesomely bad.)
Well, today for lunch I enjoyed some fried rice and chicken at a fast food stand. Ghana's form of a Big Mac, I suppose! ;)
At the internet cafe, an ABBA song just came on, "I have a dream." Can we say Mama Mia, anyone? Mom? Jodi?
Well, I have to say Goodbye for now, I may not get online again for about a week! But some good stories should be coming! Stay Tuned! ~Katie
