We asked the waiter if they served breakfast; we were all hungry as it was now 11ish and we hadn’t eaten since yesterday morning in Ouagadougou
Again we found ourselves in a construction zone. The road was as if it had been carpet bombed by the air force. Here they do not seem to do one section of road at a time like at home; they rip up the whole road and then start to work on it. They are widening a section of road; there are no detours; you just keep diving find a spot that seems smooth and drive trying to avoid people, other animals and potholes some the size of semi.. What fun!
Getting to the outskirts of Accra, we decide that if we want to go to Togo the next day we should bypass the city and find a room in Tema. Tema is the major port of Ghana and West Africa; about 200 km for the border to Togo. It starts to get dark and we decide to be extravagant and stay at an upscale hotel; The Hotel Marjory. It is more expensive but will accept Visa. Supper is by the pool, which is very nice and has its own waterfall. Unfortunately the pool doesn’t open until ten and we should be on our way by then. We still need to get pictures and a Visa to enter Togo and do not know how long that will take.
