Welcome to our next two years.

"Waste Enterprisers Welcomes Tim Wade!" Tim and WE CEO, Ashley Murray.
On June 1, we landed in Accra, Ghana. After impossibly long lines through customs, we were welcomed by Waste Enterprisers' CEO, Ashley Murray and her boyfriend, Matt. 

Day 1 in Ghana, we were taken on a tour of Accra via trotro (shared mini-bus) and taxies to see some of the major functional landmarks (cell phone store, post office, Tim's new office). We were also introduced to the dire sanitation problem in Accra firsthand--we will never forget watching trucks dump human waste straight into the ocean (the smell was unforgettable, too!).

Day 2, Tim went straight to work as COO, getting an overview of the new company.

Today, we found our first *working* internet cafe, and we'll be looking at a potential house to live in later. 

We're trying to beat the heat, stay out of the hot African sun, meet locals and expats and learn all we can about our new home.

I need to know when you have internet on a regular, or at least a scheduled, basis. I'm going through SERIOUS C&T withdraw.

Your condo still looks nice, btw. You were the best non-present hosts ever. ILY!

P.S. I really like the picture of the cows. I hope to take a picture similar to it with camels at some point.

Things look like they are moving on pretty quickly. The beach looks marvelous BUT if they are dumping waste in it are you sable to ever bath there?

Looking forward to talking faecal sludge, pyrolysis, and BOD load with you on Skype some time. Good luck with the continuing adventure!
