Post by Ann Marie
I was texting last night with Mai and she is in absolute heaven in Ghana. I told her so many people are asking about her and although I am updating posts on Facebook a few pictures would be great. She sent some overnight but the best part is what she had to say. For the same reason she started her foundation is turning out to be as rewarding as she had hoped it would be.
Texts from Mai:
“BTW if I didn’t tell you before I love it here so much. Absolutely in love with the place, the hospital, the people, the kids. They make it worth the fact that the showers make you dirtier than you were before and when you fill up the bucket the water is so murky you can’t see to the bottom. Even the fact that there is a massive spider crawling up my mosquito net right in front of my face.”
“I really love it here. It’s completely absolutely amazing and I get excited to wake up every day. I love not having data and not having to stress about any of it. And the fact there are no mirrors in this house so I haven’t seen myself at all since I got here. I just wash my face and go. I’m ready in three minutes which I love also.”
Ann Marie - I texted that I was jealous.
“This is the most amazing experience of my life. It’s crazy how poor it is here. Even the nice places are so run down and poor it is absolutely crazy. The house I am staying in is basically all outdoor, a hut with a roof.”
Mai said she would send more pictures but I have includeded one for now.
