Africa (My summer abroad in Ghana, West Africa)

Posing alongside children after playing soccer with them in Nkwantanan.

I spent this summer in the West African country of Ghana, living in East Legon, a hamlet outside the capital city of Accra. (Read up on the fairly stable democracy here.)

I lived in a hostel on the campus of the University of Ghana, where I was studying politics and the West African aesthetic.

If white people like to be the only white people around, boy did I get that treatment during my time walking and playing basketball and reading and touring this fairly stable West African nation.

My first e-mail home is posted here. I wrote a reflection, see it here.

I shot enough video to put together an hour-long documentary of sorts chronicling my time there. See  the trailer below.

Below see my reflection read and put to video and photos.
