"watanga ma tula pum"
when i was 10 my family spent a year in a tiny village in northern ghana doing mission work. the only phrase i remember clearly in mampruli (the local dialect) is the title of today's post. it means "the sun is very hot" - which is fitting because the sun has been very hot in pasadena lately. yesterday i went out for a bike ride at 5:30 and my laptop informed me that it was 102 degrees. the high yesterday was 108. today we're expecting a much calmer 97. at least it isn't very humid here.
