I walked out of my biochemistry midterm half an hour ago (on Saturday no less!), thinking about stuff like gluconeogenesis and NADH. The sun had set about an hour before, so it was dark- there’s no twilight here. As I walked past the philosophy building, a cloud moved and the moon appeared. It was the biggest, whitest, brightest full moon I’ve ever seen. It lit up the whole sky, like God or Clay’s possum light. Someone with a good camera better be documenting this! It’s still there!
Then I called Travis because I had to tell him how awesome it was, and he told me that the moon is the closest it’s been for the past 18 years. Clearly I need to brush up on my knowledge of moon lore!
Also, this is my sister’s last weekend at home before she goes to Thailand. She just had to one-up me and travel even further away from home. Just kidding Melmel! All the best as you travel where no one in our family has traveled before :)
Tomorrow, visa run to Togo! Better learn some French overnight. Anyone want to tell me some key phrases? Like “No, I know the price” or “I’m married.”
So that’s what’s going on in Ghana.
