Home sweet home   (published in Ghana)

Nou laten we dan toch nog maar één laatste blog schrijven :). Ik slaap ondertussen al weer ruim twee weken in mijn eigen bed en het gewone leven begint weer op gang te komen. Geen stralende zon meer die mij ’s ochtends wakker maakt maar de verschrikkelijke wekker. Geen vriendelijke afrikanen die je elk moment groeten maar de ‘niet altijd zo vriendelijke Amsterdammer’ die zo snel mogelijk op zijn werk probeert te komen. Geen relaxte droom weekenden naar een zonovergoten paradijs maar weer de vertrouwde verregende zaterdagen… Gelukkig ook weer vrienden en familie zien en niet elke dag meer vreemde namen om te onthouden, weer de heerlijke gerechten van mijn moeder in plaats van één van de vijf gerechten die we voorgezet kregen in Ghana. En wat dacht je van een keuken om weer te kunnen bakken, een vertrouwd kopje koffie met de gelukkige die ook thuis is en een geweldige warme, SCHONE douche J. Het is goed om weer thuis te zijn.

Nu weer aan de bak bij pathé en de aanmelding voor een studie in Maastricht is ook de deur uit. Dus we gaan serieus worden hoor! Ojeetje, nog niet zoveel zin in..

Dank jullie wel allemaal voor de lieve berichtjes, steun, liefde en ontzettende hartelijke welcome-home die ik gekregen heb tijdens en na mijn reis!

 

Heel veel kusjes!

Futbol!!   (published in Ghana)

May 28, 2013 by  

I have already been in Africa for a week! Where is the time going?! If you have not noticed yet, I figured out how to make photo albums through my blog which can be accessed from the home page of my profile.

I have attempted, so far, to communicate the paradoxical nature of this country: its beautiful landscape is a stark contrast to its harsh living conditions and the warm, welcoming spirit of the Ghanaians bears no evidence of their daily struggle. To give you an idea of the upper middle class lifestyle of a Ghanaian I have posted a photo album with pictures of the house where Kelsey and I stay.

The house is much nicer than I had anticipated, especially the living room which is furnished with couches and even a TV, which our host brother Derek uses to watch American music videos. The living room is the only part of the house that resembles western style living. What cannot be seen in my pictures, however, is that there is no hot water (which is not really unfortunate considering we live in a constant state of perspiration here) and no air conditioning. The house is concrete, temperatures rise to upwards of 35C, and there is no air conditioning. None.

What is remarkable about the Ghanaians is that they are still a generation of fixers: when something is broken it is not thrown away, but instead fixed. Their definition of broken also differs severely from that of western culture. Nearly everything that is in our house, sold on the streets, and even used in the hospital would be considered broken, worn out, or not functional by American standards. Many of the tiles are missing on our floors, the walls have smudged paint that has chipped away to reveal the underlying concrete walls, and the very few pieces of furniture we have are very simple and falling apart.

Teaching volunteer guided primary school children to sing and perform in the annual Francophone festival.   (published in Vietnam)

May 28, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Last Friday I was invited by French teaching volunteer Francoise Clerval's placement to join the school's annual Francophone festival. Francoise is an experienced volunteer whose volunteer mission at the school lasts 3 months. Besides teaching, Francoise has helped the students with building up the performances for the festival like poem reading, stories reading (Le petit prince), dance and choir singing. With her enthusiam and rich experience of working with children, Francoise has been highly appreciated by the placement for her contributions in both formal teaching and extra-curriculum activities. Let's enjoy some photos of Francoise and her student's performance taken during the festival day:
