As you read this pre-programmed post, I am jetting from Ghana to Germany to Spain to Portugal over the course of twenty-four hours. Woo hoo!
Thus we launch the Iberian Adventure chapter of this Around the World journey. This will be my last phase of travel before I fly home to Boston in May… to scheme how to fly out again in August!
Though I will be writing extensively about Spain and Portugal over the next month and a half, there are still a bevy of unpublished articles from Ghana that I’ll intermittently sprinkle into the mix. This means that you will be getting a scrumptious mix of both Europe and Africa articles, in addition to continued general travel tips for you wanderlusty souls on a budget.
And never fear, oh readers who sniffled that you’ll miss the Ghana student life stories: there are more to come!
Finally, remember that gorgeous kente print cloth which Total Child School gave me as thanks for teaching them over the past three months? Oh right– that gift I scandalously opened in front of the class, not realizing such an action is considered rude in Ghana?
Well, that cloth is now a gorgeous kente print DRESS, custom-sewn for $7 U.S. dollars and pictured here!
What do you think: should I have worn this on the plane?
And in all seriousness: can a gal wear a dress like this to a wedding or two in America this summer, or would it be too culturally confusing to U.S. eyes that are accustomed to sedate grays and browns??
