Arrived in Ghana at night...and promptly went to bed



 Here...at Aba House.
My room, which has a small bathroom too...only cold shower




Arrived late in the evening, 9:30 or 10 Ghana time, Ben K and a taxi driver brought me from the airport. On the way from Accra we passed many homemade structures, shacks selling food and stuff, much like Jamaica but more densely packed.  It's dark.
Palm trees, overcast muddy blue-orange night sky, and the smell...smoky, dusty, a bit of gas, a bit of food, a bit floral...unique. When we arrive, Ben K showed me to my room and closed his eyes and raised his hands and said a blessing for me to have a safe, healthy and enjoyable stay here in Africa.
My room is super rustic, but with a small bathroom-only cold water-and a light bulb hanging from the ceiling. I wish for a beer or someone to talk to but it appears I am the only one here or the only one awake. I am happy for the electricity. I can hear the ocean outside my screen window.
