Big highlights of the past year:
1. Ghana held presidential elections in December 2012. While the opposition party stated that the elections weren't fair and are taking the Election Commission to court, things have been extremely peaceful. We're lucky to be in an African country where parties and supporters can disagree but no one gets hurt.
2. Tim won the BMW Young Leaders' Award 2013 for his work with Waste Enterprisers and will be attending an awards ceremony in Germany this spring.
3. Carole started a new blog about markets worldwide (still playing with names - 'To Market, To Market'; '2market'; 'm2rket'; what do you think it should be, reader?). It's about inspiration from different markets worldwide, from farmer's markets to flea markets to street markets. This blog is updated much more frequently than 'Ghana Get Malaria' and is much more visually appealing - promise! www.2market.tumblr.com
4. We keep missing cold weather back home and are sad by every picture of snow that we see. But we're growing accustomed to the hot and humid air - it's a perfect place to practice Bikram yoga.
