Day 60: Goodbye Pennsylvania, Hello New Jersey

GTL (Gym, Tan, Laundry)! Just kidding, New Jersey as we saw it was nothing like the Jersey Shore. Anyways, we unfortunately were forced to drive into Princeton, New Jersey because it rained literally alllll day and the roads were extremely wet. Like I said before, Mike and I barely escaped the death trap of Lincoln Drive before, and none of us were about to attempt to escape it again in the rain. We made a good call, it just kept raining and getting worse.

So not much to do on a rainy day then. We drove through the campus and town a bit and I ended up wasting a lot of time in a bookstore, reading about cupcakes - go figure. Once our hosts were around though things picked up. We ended up making ice cream, which was awesome, and we all took some part in making dinner. I miss cooking. Anyways, that turned out to be really fun and a good way to pass the time.

The daughter of our host just got back recently from a 6 month stay in Ghana so that was really fun to talk about with her and compare our experiences. Man, I miss those Fan Chocos and Fan Yogos - basically it's frozen chocolate milk and frozen strawberry yogurt in a bag and they are the only cold, dairy products available in the country and the best snack ever. Very fun hosts and experience in New Jersey despite the weather.
