Hey, everyone! In this blog post, a wanted to give you a look at many of the incredible moments I’ve experienced during my time living in Ghana. These photos should not only give you insight into my experience thus far, but hopefully also debunk some of the myths or stereotypes you may have about Ghana.

So, sit back, relax and scroll … all while imagining yourself in these photos, absorbing some of the beautiful things Ghana has to offer!

Fruit Stands: Fresh pineapples, bananas, watermelon, popo (payaya), pear (avocados) are 3 minutes or less walking from my hostel! The fruits ranges from (0.50 to 3 cedis) which is equivalent to (12 to 75 cents)
