in Ghana at an internet cafe

so this is my first post actually in ghana. i havent had much time to come and sit at an internet cafe and blog. i have been pretty busy at the orphanage and going places with my family. at the peace and love orphanage and academy we did some teaching and painting and sewing and cleaning. the last day we played soccer with the kids there and gave them a bunch of gifts from everyone. it was cool just playing games and sitting and talking with the kids there.
my family is really cool. i feel like i really fit it well. we joke around and laugh a lot. especially me and my brother Ben who's 15. we always play pranks on each other. i cooked gnocchi for my family yesterday and they seemed to like it a lot. Ghanaian food is very rich and always includes meat. not quite used to it yet since we eat a lot of vegetables at home.
went to prom with fafa. pretty similar to our prom except that people showed up like, 2 hours late. which is a great example of ghanaian time. also went to the market with fafa and met her aunt and uncle. i will have more to say later but ben is reading over my shoulder so i am going to cut it short.
