So the verdict is Ghana, hence my blog title I'm Ghana Go For It. I came up with that cheesy title when I said what the heck? I'm going to go for it (referring to Ghana) and realized that would be a perfect blog name.
I have spent my vacation making this excruciatingly hard decision and obsessively researching the country I will be living in for 10 months. It seems so full of life :)
Here are some pictures I stole offline of Ghana. I have been overloading on Ghana everything: Reading past YES blogs, stalking their Ghana photos on Fb, watching Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, you know the whole nine yards.
The dirt there is reddish like in Virginia!
So I have heard that there are not washing machines in Ghana other than us humans (hand-washing ftw) and that showers consist of a bucket of water. Man, this will be an adventure. :)
