Akwaaba! (Welcome!) I'm ecstatic to be able to share with every/anyone following me as I travel over seas to Ghana, West Africa. I'll be studying and taking classes at the University of Ghana near the capital, Accra, soon to become my new home for the next 4 months! So welcome and join me as I keep my blog updated as I go through this new journey, and adventurous experience! Akyire! (Later!)

Starting a New Chapter

Just to make those of you who may be geographically illiterate, or just need a review of African geography, here is a map of Africa. Ghana, the country in which I will be traveling to, is in yellow. And as some of you may know one of my good friends, Anne Marx studied abroad this summer in Nigeria, which is the third country to the right of Ghana!


  1. When are you headed out there? I hope that where ever your staying will be safe. I hear stories about what can sometimes happen in some african countrys.

  2. Willy, i leave tmrrw, Thursday! And yes I will be at the University of Ghana, near the capital, where it will be no more dangerous than it would be staying in a big city in the states :) I will be careful, promise. -Alex
