Natalie's Volunteer Trip to Ghana 09' travel blog








Well as you can see, the internet never started working, so I sat there for about an hour, chatted with some American that coaches the soccer team for some weird college, and then went home.

This weekend I ended up going to Wli Falls, which is a water fall near the village of Hohoe. We had to jump on a thousand taxis and tro-tros until we finally got there, but it was worth it. The waterfall was absolutely gorgeous, and the path to get there was awesome. It was about a 30 to 45 minute hike in this jungle (with a path) and a few bridges. We managed to convince the receptionist that we didn’t need a guide to take us through a one way path. It was so much better going by ourselves, and we saved ourselves the trouble of having to pay a guide to do absolutely nothing.

The ride back home was not very fun. It started raining as soon as we left the waterfall, and we jumped in an overcrowded tro-tro. It was so overcrowded I thought I was going to fall out while we were moving because I was sitting right next to the door. I somehow managed to get off in one piece, and we had to jump in another tro that took about 2 hours to leave the station. We then arrived at another tro station where we switched tros. This was another ride from hell. The driver was going so fast, I actually rejoiced when I saw that there were speed bumps ahead because he had to slow down for them. I’m pretty sure that the lady in front of me was praying…

We managed to get home in one piece, and I’m happy to say that I will not be going on anymore crazy tro rides for the rest of my stay here. I can’t believe I have less than two weeks left in Ghana! I also can’t wait to see everyone again. Miss you guys!
