My Top Ten Ghana Scenes
I have thousands of photos from Ghana, many of them forming backdrops in my novels. Here are some top ten favorites in no particular order. Choose your top three!
Much of the Western Region coast is unspoiled, but developers have their eye on some of this prime real estate. Imagine having a home in this setting–easily a million dollars and up.
Almost all chocolate in the world comes from Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana. Cocoa beans grow in red to gold cocoa pods (shown), surrounded by a delicious sweet, tangy pulp. One cocoa tree takes about 7 years to bear fruit, and they are prone to various viruses. They cannot be harvested by machine. Remember these hard-working farmers the next time you have a bar of chocolate and try to always buy Fair Trade.
Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary is a traditional sacred grove conservation established in 1996 under the direction of a Peace Corps Volunteer as a community-based ecotourism project. Tafi Atome is the home of Mona and Patas monkeys.
A beautiful and tranquil location south of the Akosombo Hydroelectric Dam. I don’t know the details, but the Queen of Denmark paid a royal visit to the hotel in 2017 and dedicated a plaque to the hotel.
The legend of these crocodiles is that one of them rescued a Paga man being chased by a lion by allowing him to ride on its back to safety. Thereafter, the man made everyone vow never to hurt a crocodile. They are essentially domesticated with frequent meals of live chickens, paid for by intrepid travelers. Reportedly, if you find one of these crocodiles resting outside your house, it’s a blessing. A Ghanaian friend of mine declared to me, “Sacred or not, a crocodile is a crocodile and I’m never getting close to one.”
