Read all the exciting things our scholars have been up to!
I went to the Volta region with my study abroad program this past weekend and it was great. The Volta region is located in the eastern part of Ghana and the dominant ethnic group represented there are the Ewe people. Therefore, most people speak Ewe and a majority the signs were in Ewe. We saw the Volta river and the Volta lake, visited Wli waterfalls (which are the highest waterfalls in West Africa), visited Tafi Atome monkey sanctuary (the monkeys were so cute!), and stopped at a few towns/villages. The Volta region is very mountainous with lots of vegetation and I found the place to be beautiful. I enjoyed the break from the Legon suburbs and having the chance to be surrounded by nature.
I actually have pictures this time (I had some help from my roommate too) so I will post them and write all the relevant information in the caption.
