This Christmas vacation Peace and I decided to take a few days of vacation away from Accra. We packed a few things and Peace, Kofia and headed off. We spent the first night in a hotel in Cape Coast that I knew from my travels working on the Ghana Education Decentralization project. On the next day we visited Kakum National Park in the morning.
In the afternoon we visited the slave memorial in Cape Coast.
Next day we started the second leg of our journey to Axim in the Western Region. Peace’s niece Maggie called while we were on the road. What a coincidence! They were also taking a few days vacation in Cape Coast. We agreed to meet for lunch at Busua Beach Resort, just west of Takoradi. After lunch we continued on to Axim. It was almost dark when we arrived. But our cozy accommodation cheered us up after the long and rough road. Next day we spent some time exploring the beautiful sandy beaches. We spent New Years eve at the Axim Resort.
