  1. Here in Haruhigaoka, students are having a term exam from coming Monday.
    The weather is getting chilly, today’s temperature was 10 degress celsius max. In the morning, we can see frost on the ground. I wonder how it is in Ghana.

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you, TIS students!

  2. We just finished our exams but students are still completing their coursework and catching up with school work.
    Ghana is hot. Even now, as I write, the sun is burning my face :). It doesn’t really get so chilly in Ghana. When it rains, it gets a bit cold but that’s just how far it gets.
