Backseat view of Ghana

I know a real life person that visited Ghana. After lurking on my lovely cousin’s page for hours, I decided to share what I found. This will be a 2 part story, coming all the way from a backseat view of Ghana. As always I’ve listed additional links on the topic at the very bottom of this post.

  • Officially called the Republic of Ghana, is a sovereign multinational state and unitary presidential constitutional democracy, located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the sub-region of West Africa.
  • Capital: Accra
  • Continent: Africa

In a time where many are focused on saving money and discovering great places in their back yard. My beautiful cousin/ niece, Akilah Edgerton counts down the months, weeks, days till she can leave the U.S. It seems that she goes a couple of times a year.Just recently I’ve began investigating what draws her back to the same destination time after time. As most woman want to see as much of the world as possible before having children. Whatever it is, it had to be wondrous!
