Mango Season is Over!

I have been in Ghana for exactly three weeks and have still only eaten about 5 mangoes. Why is this number not 21? One for every day I’ve been in Ghana like I had hoped it would be? As I sadly found out from the Ghanaian medical students, mango season is over!!!!

In Ghana, mango season is usually from January to about May. That is why I rarely see any on the street and the ones that I buy are less than spectacular. Argh…! This has got to be my biggest disappointment in Ghana, especially since mango season just started at home in Florida. This is an even greater disappointment than inconsistent electricity, running water, mosquitoes, and inefficient work streams.

Anyone want to send me some mangoes?
