So many brand new first experiences happening today. Firstly, I have a new nephew!!! Yes, my older brother's son saw his first day of life today. Funnily enough, this time around I haven't been involved at all in the pregnancy, not asking questions and stuff so to hear that the baby was born early this morning was such a lovely surprise! Can't wait to see the little one.
Today was also the first day ever that I went on a trotro. I think I was more excited than most tourist, this was my Everest, ;). It was actually a pleasant ride, not as loud, sweaty and crowded as I imagined, but perhaps I was just lucky. Went all the way from Mataheko to Assembly Press/Novotel in Accra Central, and for only 35pesewas! A taxi journey the same distance would have cost 4-5 Ghana Cedis!
Today Virgo finally bought gas for the cooker so we unwrapped it (think I am a sucker for wrapping, was very excited about that too!) and tested it. Finally meals can be cooked in the house, no more takeaways!
The heat has been unbearable today, completely knocked me out for an hour and a half (don't worry, I was on a bed, not in traffic!). Hopefully tomorrow will be a cooler day as we get deeper into rainy season.
For now I'm going to ponder over what my newest nephew looks like and what name they'll end up giving him. Have a good evening!
