Something New on the Tro on a Daily Basis

This week our whole group had the day off on Monday because we were in the Volta Region, but starting Tuesday we were back at our internships.

However, this week was also one of the first weeks where I had an eventful day on the tros every day.

Tuesday morning I had someone get on the tro and start preaching in Twi. I couldn’t understand a lot of what she was saying except when she said “obruni.” I don’t know what she was saying, but a few people started to chuckle a little bit.

Wednesday morning I had a person sit next to me with a bucket of fish, which made the entire tro smell like fish. I’m pretty sure I smelled like that for the rest of the day because I had a faint sniff of rotten fish on the way back home.

And today when I got on the tro there was only one other person on it. It was supposed to go to Circle (a big tro station), but it didn’t even make it half way there and told me and the other person to get on another tro.

I fell asleep and almost missed my stop a few weeks ago and had a few other minor experiences, but I’ve never had this many eventful days in the same week.
