Have yourself a balmy, rhythmic little Christmas!

Well, we've been here a week as of tomorrow, and I think everyone has settled in. Our lessons are going well - four of the group are studying Gahu, a social dance, and three of us are studying Togo Atsia - a very difficult "master" piece that has been keeping us on our toes. At night, we practice or play music with our friends here - Wisdom, a 17 year old young man with immense talent and patience, has become a good friend to all.

I see the students learning so much about relationships and village life in Ghana, something that I never could provide from a classroom. What a blessing.

So we are all healthy and happy, and looking forward to another week non-winter. Be well and more soon!
