Ghana was similar to Benin and Togo in terms of food, commerce, transportation, and obsession with Barack Obama. Although English is official, the language situation was similar as well, with most people using local language. We also had to adapt to the different accent, word usage, and sentence structure of Ghanian English. We stuck to the eastern edge of Ghana during our visit.
The first area we visited was East Volta, where we checked out some waterfalls and took a guided tour through caves where ancestors took refuge during the slave raiding period, but which are now inhabited solely by bats. The entrances were tight spaces along steep slopes: definitely challenging to access.
