Today was one of those days where you can't quite explain through words just how amazing this world is. A few words to describe the rush of feelings: joy, bliss, spontaneity, laughter, appreciation, and love.

While the stage was simple, a concrete pad, the dancers and musicians enveloped our attention. Their energy and enthusiasm was contagious. Many of us found ourselves dancing in our seats, with grins plastered on our faces. It was plain to see how meaningful dance and music is to the Ghanaian culture by the crowd that gathered when the music started.
The dancers further welcomed us into their culture when they individually invited us up on stage to learn a move or two, and finished their performance by gathering us all again for a group dance. While us nurses think we can bust a move, it is nothing compared to the talent of these Ghanaian people.
