Hog Butcher of Ghana

Kumasi is a real city. Tough, dirty market town with shades of a glorious past. The traditional tourists sites are okay but take an adventure and wander down back streets trying to speak kind words in Twi ( it is easy to learn with a little practrice). Don't miss the largest market you'll ever see in West Africa. Trains leave from here too. One of the few places in Ghana to catch a train, though I never have!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of restaurants and urban amenities
  • Cons:dirty air and too much traffic
  • In a nutshell:gotta see it, but it sure nice to get back to fresher Ghana air soon
