Today started early at the SMS Guest House. We packed up all of the tools and parts we will be bringing back to Boston, along with some old machines for archiving, and started the 3 hour van ride back to Accra. We stopped along the way to visit and check in with two customers.

In the evening we met up with an importation agent that had been recommended to us by a friend of the venture. We had a productive conversation, and we are very optimistic that he will be able to help us resolve problems we have been facing with getting our grater motors from China to Ghana. Since this is a supply chain issue that could seriously impact our production schedule it is a huge relief to have made forward progress, especially as our time in Ghana winds down.
We have two more days in Accra before we leave for Boston on Sunday, which we will be spending finishing up trip documentation, identifying and prioritizing tasks for next semester, and getting to see some of the city.
Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey and continuing to support the ADE program. See you in May!
