Tomorrow, we fly out of The Gambia on a photography assignment in Ghana, for an NGO we work often with – my first visit to the country, Jason’s second. We’ll arrive in the capital city of Accra, spend a little time, before we take a long drive down South, towards the Black Volta River (what is it with us and rivers?). More driving will take us to Wa, in the Upper West Regions of the country, overlooked by the monadnock Ombo Mountain. To break what will then be a 12 hour drive back to Accra, we’ll stop over in the large commercial metropolis of Kumasi – also known as ‘The Garden City‘, due, apparently, to it’s rich and varied species of plants and flowers – in a rain forest region, near Lake Bosumtwi. It’s a busy itinerary – lots of driving between shoot locations – but we’re hoping we’ll have time to take in some of the above mentioned landmarks; even if it is just a fleeting glance from behind a windscreen!
More Ghana photos coming soon! The Florios – Helen & Jason
