being in the states for a month was great. i really, really enjoyed being with our parents. it was sad to say goodbye to them. i appreciated being able to drive to various stores with ease and purchase everything on our list of what to bring back to ghana with us. it was wonderful to see our friends, the Ramanujans, and play soccer throughout the month in the cold, crisp air. i appreciated being able to find a wellness center that diagnosed my allergies and treated my ailing back pain and poor circulation. it was also a great time to relax, something i don't often do, especially in my mind.
