    • Day 5

      Northern Ghana

      June 28, 2019 in Ghana ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      There's not much things here.
      I'm sure I'll find similar things in other regions.
      Was planning to roam around the town but to tired.
      And Larabanga mosque was... Small :/

      I planned to: visit the central Mosque, central market, stadium, etc. But seeing the township... Hmmm.. I think I will just pass. The journey to Larabanga was exceptional tho. Got a guy helped me get a minibus van to Damongo and then take a short taxi ride to Larabanga.

      Minivan was 12 ghc (24 ghc return) and taxi was 60 ghc. It was ok. The mosque itself located in the middle of the community. And the vicinity area was like a small village. Plus they asked for donation here and there.

      Also there's a mystic stone... Basically a stone.
      Well... But this was ok for a first visit. The climax should be kept safe for the last.

      K. En route to Kumasi today!

      Day 1 Tamale Sucks

      June 26, 2019 in Ghana ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      So everything kind of overbudget and I had a trade in of the budgets by... Finding a cheap hotel. Which is a disaster.

      Safui Memorial Lodge. The name of the hotel. They have one of the worst service. I asked for a shuttle, they agreed. But then noone came. Prince have to call one of his colleague to pick me up at the airport. Capt Evans, he dropped me here. The hotel is very outskirts even though they advertised 0.8 km from the city center (which is a lie).

      I went for a check in, the manager doesn't even have any idea who is checking in. No document asked. No apologize for the shuttle that didn't show up. Then in the evening I found a restaurant nearby, and I just thought to have a dinner there. It needs 30 minutes until I cancelled the taxi because it didn't fucking come! And I'm no longer hungry.

      I remember Capt. Evans told me to call him, but calling someone just because you need a dinner? Nah...

      Please don't come with expectations when you come to Tamale..
