The Top 10: 10 things we WON’T miss in Ghana

leave a comment »

Our Top 10 series continues:  here are some things that we won’t be missing too much!  Again, in no particular order:

1.  Mosquitoes  (malaria is a major reason why we had to return to Australia early)

2. The frog that used to keep Mar up all night with its croaking / singing / noises!

3.  the Harmattan…. the hot dry wind that cracks your skin, turns you into a lizard, and makes your hair look  (and feel!) like straw!

4.  The wet…. the rainy season which turns everything mouldy! 

5.  the bus trip to Accra from Tamale…. 14 hours of hell. 

6.  The tro tro ride to Bolga or Walewale…. 

7.  a cold shower…. not bad in the heat, but having a warm shower is just sooo lovely….

8.  hand washing our laundry every week. 

9.  the meat sellers at the market (not a pretty sight for vegetarians!)

10. dodging traffic going the wrong way on our morning cycle commutes to work.
