So I’ve been home for 3 weeks…
By Juliette Pont (First Fifth Global Advocate)
…and now it’s time for me to go back to Ghana. It is so obvious, ever since I stepped out of the airport in Switzerland I have been sick. From a simple cold to the flue to bronchia to an astonishing mix of them all. The weather is not helping either, with an average of 6 days of rain per week I am back where you can say : “we have too much water, stop it now ! Seriously ! “.
I am certainly not over complaining about the weather (even if right now the sun is shinning) but let’s move on to this :
A quick way to show you those magnificent poles and the amazing work that has been done ! The meter has arrived now meaning that the whole building is connected !
This is very unfortunate for me because it means that no one is coming by the volunteer house anymore and so when I skype with Nana (UHCC secretary), I can only speak with Nana.
I really miss everyone and if I wasn’t homesick in Ghana, I am for sure Ghanasick at home. I have learned so much there is no comparison that can be made. I know now new advocates are going to work harder than I did and commit themselves to this wonderful community. I am jealous of course because they get to start this life changing program when I get to finish it… They will spend 3 months in Africa, discovering beautiful landscapes and beautiful hearts but more importantly they will grow as tall as the poles they help raising, as strong as the buildings they help building.
To finish, I would like to introduce you to this new blog :http://fromtheretohere.tumblr.com
Named after Dr. Seuss quote :
“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” I will be posting there my favorite photos for as long as I have new photos to post (then I’ll have no other choice than going back to Bawjiase to snap some new ones )
