I got a call from my brother a week ago that said he is getting married.  So, myself and a friend headed to village Thursday night and attended the wedding festivities Friday late into the night and then headed back to the city on Saturday. 
As usual it was pretty disorganized but a lot of fun!  We ate really good the entire time and the weather right now is the best you can ask for here.  It was a little chilling in the evening forcing me to throw on a long sleeve t-shirt.

To go to Togo

I recently was sent to another small West African country called Togo.  It is between Benin and Ghana.  I was there for six days and it was pretty sweet.  The workshop I attended was really great and I learned a lot.  I was lucky enough to stay right on the ocean. The View was amazing!!

At any one time you could see like 50-75 ships just a few miles off of the coast waiting to go into the neighboring ports.  There are pirates in the area so they stay close to the coast line for safety.

As we were driving around I took some pictures of a bank and of the ECOWAS building.  I thought the architecture was pretty different than what I have seen in West Africa.
