I can’t even begin to describe today other than to say that what was supposed to be a two and a half hour drive from our hotel in Accra to Kakum National Park was actually a four and a half hour drive—one way. I feel like I’ve seen all of Africa through the window of an old Mercedes on a potholed, dirt road. We left around 7:30am and got back by 8:30pm. So that means we were gone for about thirteen hours and literally ten of that we spent driving. Or in traffic. At least I was able to take some pictures in the three hours that we actually spent at the park and the Elmina slave trading castle.
