Besides my title, the coolest thing we’ve done here is visit Cape Coast. Canopy walks, beaches, and crocodiles lining the waters of the hostel were all that awaited us and I must say it was quite an experience. First of all, I’m afraid of heights so the tour guide constantly telling us that we would be forty meters high on a rickety piece of wood for the canopy walk was enough to make me grab my backpack and banku and run back to Ho. However, accompanied by Allyson and some of her friends, I made it through the seven bridges that make up the Kakum Canopy Walk. Even though we didn’t see any monkeys (sad face), the view was amazing. We were above most of the trees and had a clear view of the rainforest around us that is apparently home to leopards, elephants, monkeys, and probably a lot of bugs.
We spent the rest of our trip at the hostel and the beach where Allyson inadvertently went swimming. Well actually, she just got hit in the face by a giant wave making her a true advocate for always carrying a change of clothes.
Oh! And our hostel had burgers. That’s right. Never has a sesame seed bun tasted so good. The trip came to a close with a wonderful bumper sticker we spotted on the back of a van. I don’t think anyone can guess what wonderful adventures we will have next! Well, except the lord. -JOEY GILL
