Much to my frustration Ghanaian time was in full swing at the TV station today. I literally waited around all day. At first I waited to use Edwin's computer to install the new editing system so I could actually start working on our show again. Then I waited 2 hours for the editing system to install. Literally 3 minutes after the installation was complete the power went out and since Edwin's computer battery is not existent, so did his computer. So I waited some more. Finally, an hour after Edwin said he'd be "right back" and the Coastal TV dog got sick of me scratching his head, I left. I'm still waiting to see if my computer can be fixed too. I've been waiting since Monday for the station's computer whiz to get back from Accra. Well, today he was back, but my boss (who has the other Macintosh that we need to try to fix mine) was sick. I guess I'll wait until Monday. In the meantime though I've been trying to work on a grant application that Coastal TV is putting together and I'm really enjoying it. I've been researching (when I have a computer and Internet) about the relationship between the Ghanaian media and the new democracy. Journalism and free expression through media were only decriminalized in 2001. I had no idea the whole system was so young. I'm also helping with a tentative curriculum for a broadcast journalism school that Coastal TV wants to start. It's not exactly what I thought I'd be doing, but at least it's interesting. I'm just shocked that a TV station has lasted this long without a huge reliance on deadlines and timliness, especially with a staff that is not well trained. I'm traveling to Nzulezu, a stilt village in Takoradi, this weekend, so I hope to have a relaxing "Ghanaian time" weekend.
