It’s New Years Eve and I spent it Saha style. During the day we started with water orientation at the saha global office. Kathryn and Sam presented on the global water crisis and the history of how Saha came about. It was really interesting learning about the Millennium Development Goals outside of the classroom and without being expected to complete a multiple choice test afterwards. We headed back to GILLBT for lunch and then were off with our translators for an afternoon of fun.
Wahab, our group leader, took us to his home and TJ showed us his mom’s bakery. Her chips were delicious. We stopped by the National Soccer Stadium and watched a rec team practice. We also had a task to buy tickets at Wooden a local coffee shop where our festivities for the evening would take place. We had dinner, showered and then waited for Kathryn & Sam to pick us up for our NYE plans at Wooden. There were several selfies taken while we waited. Before heading out we debriefed as a group and talked about our individual New Years Resolutions. Wooden was pretty empty at first but it filled up quickly. There was a cocktail contest that Orlando, another Saha rep entered. He didn’t end up winning, but it was fun to cheer him on while he made the drinks. and traditional Ghanaian dancing.
