"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Robin's flight got in Thursday night -- only about a half-hour late. She was in pretty good spirits considering the long flight and she's handled jet lag and the culture adjustment really well.
We've been taking it pretty easy. Went downtown yesterday and walked around a bit. Had lunch at a nice cafe overlooking the ocean and then went down to the "cultural center" .. a nice term for a maze of booths with local artists using really high-pressure sales tactics to try to get you to buy their stuff. Then we came back home and just hung out and talked.
It's been raining this morning, but it looks like it's going to be nicer this afternoon, so we're thinking of heading down to the beach. Tomorrow it's church and various activities and then our day trips start on Monday. Monday and Tuesday to Cape Coast and Elmina and the castles there. Wednesday and Thursday to the Volta Region, Okosombo Dam, the waterfalls at Wli and maybe even the Monkey Sanctuary. Back Thursday night and then we fly back on Friday night.

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
