Castles galore

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 …

Smog..

We were off before first light so we could make an early run at the embassies. I have to say, the drive into Accra was a bit of an eye opener. The roads were good but the air wasn't. We’d thought Cote D’Ivoire was a slash and burn society but Ghana had taken it to a whole new level. There were piles of rubbish burning all over the place …

Time to move on!

Well its Monday morning and the pangs of guilt regarding not being at work have gone. And I feel a lot better today. Let's hope this continues!

I got up around 6 o'clock and sat watching the sun rise and listening and watching the waves.

This journey so far has been incredible or so many reasons. West Africa is so different from …

    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!
