The Rain Arrives

The day that we went out to finish our Mandela garden, we were hit by a heavy rain. It was a really nice rain. It reminded me of laying on the bed reading a book during a heavy rain at Wolf Creek in East Texas. A good afternoon rain is so nice when you are in the countryside! Right before the rain arrives, heavy winds come first. Since there is a lot of exposed dirt, this means there is a bit of a sand storm which makes it hard to keep your eyes open if you get caught in this wind. See...I knew lasik would be a good idea! I couldn't imagine having contacts and getting lots of sand in my eyes!

This rain however demonstrates a major problem in many villages in Ghana...erosion.
