Hi guys, just a quick update after my last post First day as a working girl in Ghana
My second day at work had me waking up at 5am so I could leave out at 6:30am making an allowance for that 30 minutes traffic I have no choice but to sit in! I’ve been trying to go to bed for 10pm, so I can get close to my full 8 hours sleep but it’s more been 11pm. Minus the traffic my journey to work should take 45 minutes but it’s taking 1 hour and 15. Today I got to work 15 mins early! I’m new to this early rise traffic malarky so I’m going to use the week to gauge the best time to wake and leave out with the aim of ‘getting as much beauty sleep as possible’ (as Bilou said in the film House Party).
Like I predicted my fellow Ghanaian female colleagues are as friendly as a tree! There are only a couple that are warm and welcoming, the men however have made my days very entertaining and made me feel really welcome. It’s what I expected so it’s fine, I am there to do a job, so that is exactly what I will do.
The food provided today was white rice, stew and fish or red red (fried plantain and beans), when I went the rice was finished so I had to have the red red, the beans were as tasteless as water but the fish was nice, at least that’s some good.
As for the job, there is a lot of monitoring tags to create which I’m trying to get my head around but I’m a fast learner so I’m sure I will pick it up soon.
Until next time guys 💋
