Finally, I have found the time to use a quality computer with a working disc drive! The following pictures correspond with my previous travelblogs detailing my adventures to Tafi Atome (monkey sanctuary), Wli Falls, Tamale, Larabanga, Mole National Park, and others. Enjoy!

News: I'll be traveling to Togo and Benin with my Beninese friend in mid-October. Francophone Africa awaits.

I'm not sure who is more curious - me or the children who went wild at first sight of their own images in my LCD screen.

Just one kilometer from the Togolese border, this fantastic fall is the highest in West Africa.

Though not as large as the falls of the Volta region, Kintampo is just as awe-inspiring. In the bottom left corner of the picture, Andrew is busy filming the cascading waters.

Beautiful images, B! Love the portraits of the Muslim man, village woman, and pensive primate. When you can, send a pic of you with your traveling buddies. I know that sounds boring to you in light of your surroundings, but we'd love to see images of our explorer. Be well. Love, POP.

Just got to check in--Wow!
B- Sheer delight! Absolutely adore the pix of the "Monkey business" and the expression with the little primate next to it. I keep chuckling to myself to imagine all you are seeing that you can't share with us. You really have a good design sense. I love seeing the fabrics of the beautiful village woman you photographed, and just the diversity of what you have captured! Thanks again for keeping us posted! Great fun!--Brenda

Did you take the footpath from Amedzofe - Fume ? ? ?
Hey, I just got home a week or so ago from my trip to Ghana unfortunately I was only there for 5 weeks, but saw all that I could. I just wanted to know if by chance you took a footpath from Amedzofe to Fume, to get to Tafi Atome. I really loved it there the people especially. I managed to take the Hike with a couple friends of mine and my Ghanian host sister. We weren't at all prepared but the hike took about 2 hours between 2 mountains down Amedzofe then to Fume. It was a good time, just curious if you took the same route. P.s. your pictures and writing is amaising. . . what are you going to school for? and where? University of Ghana? just curious. I miss ghana already. Looking to still be there vicariously through others. :-) Thanks Laura

Muslim near Larabanga, Northern Ghana

more history
thanks for the pictures and the brief history about the larabanga mosque. more still need to be done in projecting this natural and unique artifact that we have been privilege to have as a country. the mystic stone should have been added to tell the whole world of what actually the town is made up of. if indeed we are talking of developing the country's tourist sites then lets consider the development of this area too.
