It’s been several days since we had internet but there has been plenty to keep us busy. We camped for two days at Brenu Beach on the Cape Coast. We visited two depressing but enlightening ‘castles’ from which slaves were sent to the Americas. Then more camping at Kakum, a national park in Ghana.
And this being an overland trip, of course we got stuck. On our previous African overland, we spent a lot of time stuck in the sands of the Sahara Desert, but yesterday’s sticky situation was in the mud.
There’s been torrential rain around us—you can tell by the puddles—but we’ve only had sprinklings of rain.
Luckily we weren’t stranded for long. A joint effort including the driver, Jason, some fellow passengers and some helpful locals had us on the way in about 15 minutes.
Now that it’s caked in mud, the truck looks like a real overland vehicle.
P.S. I’ll write about the other stops soon. Just give me some internet. I’ve been trying to post this short item since last night. Too many error messages. On the upside, we had our first hot showers in nine days. We’ve had showers, but only cold.
