Stayed my first night at the KNUST Guest House in Accra. Then took Public transportation to Kumasi. Much like taking a Gray hound. Long trip (about 7 hours) over some extremely bad roads. A communication mix up had me waiting by the side of the road for about 2 1/2 hours for someone to pick me up. Didn't get worried until darkness set in. Strange place,strange people all around (knowing I'm not from Kumasi, or even Ghana), no place to sit and trying to keep my luggage close to me.
