|I worked with Tracey in Cameroon and she left the day I arrived but we got to wave at each other at the airport.|

The location of Mercy Ships in the port makes it really easy to leave the ship and walk into town. So we have already left the ship several times. Last year the ship was so far within the port that we had to ride a shuttle out of the port and then take a taxi, so we rarely left the boat.
Wednesday night we went on adventure and had dinner out as a team. Per the usual, the traffic was unpredictable so we went to a nice little Italian place. Thursday night I went for a walk with a few girls that I met at orientation and tried to navigate Conakry. We made it out and about and saw some of our temporary home, but then hurried back to the ship to make it in time for dinner.
Friday night we went to an African dance class, with live drumming at the cultural center. It was SO fun! I was horrible at it, but it was a great workout and my calves were a bit sore the next day.
|In the Taxi on the way back from African Dance class, there were 7 of us in one taxi...when in Africa :)|

Last year, I narrowly missed Mango season, but i'm here in prime mango season this year and I couldn't be happier :)
I am so excited for my time here in Guinea, I miss the good friends I met last year, but this time has been so incredible already.
