OUR JOURNEY TO AFRICA

Bryant and I journeyed to the Motherland in November. Our journey to Ghana, West Africa was the most life-altering, eye-opening experience in all my days on Earth. Before the trip, I knew so little of Africa (although I had vivid fantasies in my mind). These fantasies are now replaced with memories of our real experiences, the visions, sounds, smells and beautiful people of Africa.

We spent 3 weeks in Ghana, starting and ending in Accra, the capital city of Ghana. In addition to spending time in the bustling metropolis of Accra (population over 2 million), we spent time in the bush, the forest, the coast, the ocean, the lake, on a mountain and in the 2nd largest city in Ghana.

We want to share some of our “Visions of Ghana” with you. We will take you on a tour of Ghana, thru my camera lense, in a series of posts.

I will begin were we began our journey, Accra. Enjoy!!
