5 days, 1 Ghana! – Day 0

For many years, I have been thinking of visiting Ghana. I finally decided to make it happen as part of my last trip to Nigeria and put an itinerary together. A combination of Google, Timeout Accra and feedback from a very nice someborri produced the itinerary below. To make the trip even more interesting, I decided to travel by road (i.e. public transportation) to Ghana from Lagos. (Many thought I had lost it at this point!).

This is the first installment of a multi part series. Yeah, I had that much fun in Ghana!

Day 1: Road trip, Hotel Check in, chop, baff and tins!

Road trip from Lagos to Accra with mid afternoon arrival. Checkin, relax. Quick taxi ride to La Palm Beach to hang out for the rest of the day. (Thai massage at La Palm Beach Hotel is said to be the best in Ghana!). One minute away from the hotel is the Artists Alliance for a variety of souvenirs & all types of art from paintings, sculptures, postcards, etc.

  1. Bros, dis usurping of feferity no good O! I don tell you tire, you be real Adanikanke!!

  2. What’s that phrase again? The feferity of a big man is very kpataricious (and something I’m too sober to remember. Lol). But in my case, I dey try work backwards to the big man. i.e. (dat is eh), the kpataricious feferity will in effect be the cause that will effect the said bigmanism.

  3. Right!…..using reverse agbari on U’rself (?)
    “The feferity of a big man is quite kpataricious &, the subordinates are out!”
    Regardless, U still be Adanikanje (& adanikanke)
