Shai Hills in Ghana

I had a couple of free days in Accra recently while winding up my month in Ghana. I decided to visit the Shai Hills Resource Reserve for a change of pace. By tro-tro to Ashaiman and then another one got me to the Reserve in less than 2 hours, a distance of 33 miles. I had booked a room at the Shai Hills Resort, supposedly 300 m. down the road from the main entrance. Actually, it's more nearly 1 mile, which I walked instead of waiting for another tro-tro. Hot!

There are extensive jungley… Continue

Wiring Payment to Foreign Travel Vendors: It Saves, But Is It Safe?

Back in the day, you'd stroll into a travel agency, get face-to-face advice, and leave with an armful of color brochures and a paper ticket. Then the Internet came along, but for a long time consumers were slow to warm up to paying online with a credit card. That's mostly history now: Most will happily divulge those 16 digits in return for the savings that online competition and the elimination of the travel agent middleman have brought about.



All well and good, for the… Continue
