Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire to Near Axim, Ghana, January 28, 2019

We've consistently been leaving at 8 am and that is just fine with me.  It's daylight, we are awake anyway and it just makes it more relaxed and comfortable when it's later in the morning.  We were on our way to Ghana and the border crossing was one of the simplest.  We are now back to English and Ghana seems like the best place yet - very modern, not much garbage and lots of construction happening.  There was a very long queue at the border and many trucks were hauling oranges.  I wonder how many are rotten by the time they reach their destination-

It looks like the trucks have been at the border a long time because quite a few had tents set up-

They still pick Palm fruit which is made into palm oil.  It stinks really badly and we are constantly meeting trucks filled with it-

The countryside is very green and there's a lot of planting that appears to be garden produce-

Another bridge!  What to do?

We arrived at a campsite near Axim, Ghana where we're spending the night.  There's an outdoor gym with dumbbells made by pouring cement into molds made from tin cans-

The beach and water were lovely-

It's still very humid, sweat drips off my nose and I have no energy.  All day I just hope for air conditionning somewhere! I ate supper in the restaurant and had an interesting burger that once cut in half, completely fell apart.  Oh well.
Looking forward to a couple of forts tomorrow.
