Hello all! :smile:

As some of you may know, I recently went on a return trip to Ghana. I also went back in 2011 and never posted any pictures, which I had promised to do :redface: So here in Part 1 I am posting some pictures of my 2011 adventure. I will start a separate thread for my 2013 adventure when I get some more time!

In 2011, my girlfriend and I went to Ghana through an organization called Village Volunteers. We stayed for 6 weeks and did work at a small library and the local secondary school. We stayed on a farm with a host family who we revisited just last month. We also did a lot of touring. Here are some of the things we did.

Finally, some land!

Is that raw goat meat? Do they eat it like that?!
