We finally made it!
After a treacherous trip over the Southern Coast of Ghana and all over

When you check in, you get the run down of how the place is run. Donâ€™t go to the beach with valuables or at dark, when you lock your room, leave your key with the bartender so you donâ€™t have to carry it or lose it, you pay nothing until you check out; you simply give them your name and they â€śchargeâ€ť it to your room per say and you pay for your entire stay when you check outâ€¦Itâ€™s such a great environment as it forces the staff to know your name and vice versa. You quickly develop a great relationship with everyone especially the bartenders. Fridays they have drumming and dancing shows and Saturday, live reggae. Washington, the man who checked us in last night told us there would be no show as it wasnâ€™t busy due to the elections. About an hour later, a large tro tro showed up with the drummers and dancers. I couldnâ€™t have been more ecstatic. They gave a great show, like always and even pulled me up to dance (the pictures are quite funny). If only I could dance like those girls!
In the morning we had breakfast and explored the beach which blows me away everytime. Itâ€™s a small close knit community of true rastafaris, smoking â€śganjaâ€ť and all, playing their Bob Marley music. They have some of the neatest handicrafts Iâ€™ve seen in the area but not a huge selection. Their earrings are very cheap though, only $1!
