Check out our guest post today for Off Beat Travel where we offer suggestions on what to do, where to stay, and where to eat when visiting Accra and Cape Coast, Ghana.
When you touch down in Accra (or anywhere in Ghana), you are greeted with the word “akwaaba” or “welcome” and the place is buzzing with activity: construction projects, vendors hawking antennas and groundnuts to commuters, roads being built and new investments. Ghanaians boast about their stable democracy – they just peacefully transitioned governments in a 2009 election decided by only 40,000 votes.
It’s an exciting and incredible place to be! Please go visit the post HERE.
