I am wearing the same clothes I wore 24 hours ago and I don't really even mind. I haven't slept in the past 24 hours either; Rachel and I made a pact to stay awake all night to watch the sun come up for our last night here. I had a few weak moments, moments where I about dozed off, but I made it!
Around 5:00 am, we headed towards the stadium, a short walk from out hostel, to watch the sun rise.
It was quick.
But the sunrise was beautiful. And as it peaked over the horizon, it kind of hit me.
Am I really going back to the United States?
We said goodbye to my friend Paula last night, and that was hard.
Tonight, we are leaving Ghana.
My heart will be here forever, part of me will be here forever.
