The past two weekends I’ve decided to get my tourist on and visit other parts of Ghana. Besides getting my purse stolen by two guys with a knife this past weekend, the trips have been amazing. We’ve visited a monkey sanctuary, climbed the tallest mountain in Ghana, swam under a waterfall, gone on a canopy walk, touched crocodiles and explored a slave castle. Every part of Ghana that I’ve seen so far has so much character, even if it is a tourist location.
