Aseda ben.

i like riding the bus in ghana becuase people argue heatedly over seating, tickets, luggage, and space in a cutting combination of twi and english curse words but once the bus starts, someone always stands up and leads a loud, firey safe-trip prayer session that turns into a group sing along of akan gospel songs in multiple harmonies with waving arms and clapping hands, that subsides into silence after about fifteen minutes except for the one lady in the back who keeps singing quietly and to herself, loud enough, barely, for you to hear and doze off to if you want after the driver turns out the lights and all the strangers who had just been arguing lean against eachother for softer sleep and no one makes another sound outside of a quiet murmur until the driver swerves to swiftly or something and everyone stands up and yells "Drivaah! Drivahh! watch yourself!" and other things in twi.

oh, and Happy Halloween and Thank you to Elaine, youre package of candy arrieved perfectly, today. Ive never been more grateful for MnMs.
love, maggie

Hi, Maggie. We had a lampid dinner the other night with your mom and a bunch of other UC Davis alumni. So we heard great things about you. Reading your blog lets me know that you're having an exciting, wild time this year. Keep having fun. Stay safe.
