Girls go to Ghana

May 4, 2010

Rumor has it that Ghana is significantly more developed than Togo. Skyscrapers pattern the horizon of Accra, the capital city. For our weekend away, though, 7 friends and I skipped the urban mayhem. We piled into a minibus and drove upcountry to Wli Falls. After marvelling over simple signs of civilization–a stripe painted down the middle of the road! gas station convenience stores that look like…well, gas station convenience stores!–the giddiness gave way to calm as we arrived in a slow-paced, rural haven.

A day-long hike to the top of Wli Falls, West Africa’s tallest waterfalls:

Run, Hannah, Run!

The perfect way to spend a birthday weekend =)
