Superhuman News 🤖 - Starry Sky in Ghana

Hey there,
My host family lay outside on hard wooden benches that are only 10 centimeters wide.
Luckily I don’t. Alphonsus, the father of the family, had prepared a room for me with a bed, mattress and fan.
In 2008, I volunteered for six months in Bolgatanga, a town in the north of Ghana.
On one of the first nights, I had no choice but to go outside and lie there as well. The power had gone out, and it was extremely hot in my room.
Alphonsus shrugged. “This happens very often. No idea when we will have electricity again.”
Half asleep, I grumbled at the heat. Then I looked up. I had never seen so many stars.
Due to the malfunction, all lamps and other lights in the area were also turned off. It was pitch dark on the ground, all the light came from the universe.
Watching all those stars was unreal and overwhelming.
Space travel, that is the theme of this newsletter. Enjoy reading!
