Flag of Ghana  , Greater Accra Region,
Sunday, October 21, 2012

Our intention is to avoid big cities where possible so were headed for Kokrobite (we'd heard about its amazing beaches and laid back camping / accommodation) just outside Accra. We arrived at Big Millys just before lunch after pretty good motorways into Accra except for a rather annoying 30km stretch of dirt roads (we're still sensitive!). Big Millys is like a piece of heaven albeit a bit commercial. It's at the bottom of kokrobite township (Accra) right on the beach, the fisherman bring their catch in straight to shore and sell direct to the cafes and the villagers.

On the weekends (thank god were at the end) its full of local wealthy Ghanaians and a dose of hippies, backpackers and volunteer workers who want the Africa experience but with a full English breakfast. Dreadlocks a plenty.

Hypocrites! We decide to stay 3 days!

It's all really relaxed so we can work on the bikes. Decided to do a basic service my self with Adrian's help to over see rather...

Hmm not sure why I don't just find a mechanic?
