Up early, coffee, porridge and bread with choccy sauce J

Lots of km’s therefore lots of corrugations and boy did they feel like they were bashing the shit out of the Colonel, but he took it well and only questioned me at fuel stops!

After travelling down 120kms od roads that were supposed to be tarred and were actually dirt and roadworks, we finally arrived at our destination….the border!

Entered Ghana with all the visas, documents and local Cedi you’d ever need so made our way to another Catholic mission (there seems to be a theme running through here!) and ate a spot of lunch wellan omelette baguette anyway and Luke fell in love with the waiter, so he parted with his money, tshirt and mu,erous phtotos and we decided to go out to dinner!

Found a African-stytle western motel which was good for a chicken burger and chips and the headed home.

End of day location: Wa, Ghana
Distance covered: 290kms
