Serious Jungle fun in Ghana
The British colonists especially liked the Kumasi.  The rolling hills which are cool and wooded, is a good retreat from the humidity of the entire coast.  This is quite an affluent city. The traffic here is impossible though. You could spend about three hours just walking around the market and this happens to be one of the biggest markets in all of West Africa.  Town criers and other traders who are here to silt heir crafts.

While you walk the streets of Senegal, you will be able to find the West African breeze rustling through the palm trees and then it stirs up the dirt into what looks like a tiny tornado right in the parking lot. No, No, it definitely is not as bad as it seems. You could hire a SUV to take you around and while you go past the nocturnal crowds that keep streaking in and pout of the nightclubs here. Or if you are arriving on foot, car, scooter or even by a battered and beaten up black and yellow taxi cab. Get a chance to witness Mr. N’Dour in person who is Africa’s biggest music star.  Over here the city comes completely alive to the sound of music especially at night.
