Gotta go to Ghana

My family’s been on the move lately. Last week Andreas took eight Model UN team members to a conference in Doha, Qatar. While he was away, Alekka traveled with eleven of her classmates to the Global Issues Student Summit in Accra, Ghana.

Teacher chaperones are pretty good about sending home daily reports from trips like these. The idea is to reassure parents that their kiddos are OK.

Saturday’s update from Ghana was a set of photos:

And what is Alekka doing here? Community service.  Specifically, sweeping out an ostrich enclosure (with the ostriches in it) and cleaning out a crocodile pond (also, with the crocodiles in it). The chaperone didn’t include the wildlife in the pictures, but Alekka assures me the critters were right there. Watching.

What? Me worry!?!
