    This resort was super cute and definitely catered to Obrunis. It has lots of food selections and even a cocktail bar. Its self contained double rooms are cute, with one of the cleanest and nicest bathrooms I have seen since being in Ghana. Good price for good value.

    I awoke to a stunning sunrise and got up for a fantastic walk down Busua Beach. As I walked east along the beach, the sun was just rising over the horizon. It was large and bright orange. Spectacular.

    After breakfast, we pulled the downstairs lockers off the truck and cleaned them. Just before leaving, Maria, Talbot and I went to the nearby St. Peter's Methodist church where the Sunday morning mass was taking place.

    People were singing, clapping and dancing. What a happy service although I did not understand a word of what was being said as they were speaking in Ashanti.

    At out lunch stop, I ate some beautiful octopus on sticks. Five sticks for less than one pound. Absolutely delicious.

    As the hills rolled on, it looked like a giant monster had passed and bitten chunks out of the trees and hills. This of course was cultivated land but was quite a feature along the road to Accra. And on we went until our turn off to Kokrobite. This area shows signs of prosperity with all the houses with pitched and tiled roofs, manicured gardens, fenced walls and metalwork gates. One might have been in a South African suburb as be in one of the outskirts of Accra.

    We turned off and headed to the coast. turning up at Big Milly's was so interesting. It was like being whisking oneself out of Africa. Lots of people around a courtyard of bars and eateries. Not so many smiling, welcoming faces. Westerners littered around the place! I kept smiling an saying hello anyhow! Yo each their own bit this kind of place is not really my kind of thing. To many egos. Too much tension. I cannot look back to Busua but it goes to show what a difference a day makes. Hey it's all good though!

    Greetings everyone!

    Finding the right trotro to Kikrobite I knew was going to be an issue at the huge and hectic station in Accra. As soon as I got out of the taxi at the station a young guy asked me where I was going, he grabbed my backpack, threw it on top of his head, ad said, "follow me". We had to go through a section of a market, …

    Took
    Kirsty into town to see the castle of St George built in 1482 by the
    Portuguese. Later it was taken by the Dutch and in 1872 it was sold
    to the British for a small sum. Inside the had a chapel built in the
    main courtyard and this is now a small museum with some good old
    photographs. Originally the fort was built as a …

    We rolled into Accra with the usual chaos that accompanies our big yellow truck. Our camp was the famous Big Milly's Backyard in Kokrobite, it's a haven for backpackers and volunteers at weekends. Big Milly's was at the end of a narrow road, Steve managed to squeeze himself through the parked cars and under the overhanging trees. Most of the trees …

    I had gone to bed with lots of Ghana frustrations that were exacerbated by the "social mixer" that NYU had organized for us to meet people at UG and Ashesi. Given the gender ratio of those in attendance it seemed like the invitation had been taken as a chance to meet some obroni girls.  Although the music was good even the free food could not ke...
