I booked my plane ticket today. The plan is to fly to Philadelphia on February 5th (Super Bowl Sunday!), attend staging/orientation the next day, bus over to NY, then fly over to Ghana! Since I’m flying to Philly from the west coast I had no choice but to fly over on Sunday, the day before staging starts. Unfortunately, this will mean that I will most likely miss the Super Bowl.
So far the only bad thing about going to Ghana is that it sounds similar to so many other countries…I’m constantly reminding people that I’m going to Ghana, not Gambia, Grenada, or Guinea. In fact, when I called to book my plane ticket the lady on the phone wanted to send me to Guyana’s staging event, which takes place the week before Ghana’s.
