We will also introduce those of you new to travel in West Africa, rural Ghana in particular, to a ride on the local public transportation called a “Trotro” and visit on a traditional market day in the town of Denu. There you will be able to buy items of interest to eat and wear. This will be a great place to also replenish your bottled water supply from a local store owner just at the edge of the market, and sit down at a local establishment for a cold beverage, practice your Ewe (or French – we are very close to the French speaking Togo border) and meet some of the very friendly residents of the town who may stop to visit.

 

Less than a miles walk from your lodging is a compound of traditional dancers and drummers willing to teach you traditional Ghanaian dances.
