Weird things you see in Ghana

The camel again.

As someone who is originally from Ghana, I really shouldn’t be surprised by the things I see. I mean, Ghanaians are the world’s friendliest people, but you sure do see some weird things there. Maybe it’s because I no longer live there, but every time I visit, I see some new oddity. Things that make you laugh or say “hmmm”!

The Best Beach in the World

If you want to lay on the best beach in the world, try Shoal Bay Beach in Anguilla. I know others may have their idea of what the best beach in the world is, but to me, Shoal Bay Beach is the best. I don’t even need to say much, just check out the pictures below.

Paris – The City of Light

 

Paris is my favorite places to visit. I try to make it to Paris – even if for a few days – every year. There’s nothing better I like to do when in Paris, than to take a walk at night. They don’t call it the “City of Light”/”La Ville-Lumière” for nothing! It is simply breathtaking! Everything is bathed in a glorious, romantic light. The Eiffel Tower even puts on a 5-minute light show every hour on the hour, from sunset until 1am. Can you tell I’m in love with Paris? I can’t wait to go again this year.

 

Colosseum Views

Me against a backdrop of the inside of the Colosseum. You can only get these magnificent views from the uppermost tier!

If you go to Rome, you MUST visit the Colosseum. And when you are there, do splurge on the upgraded ticket for a tour of the uppermost tier. It is a tough, steep climb to the top, and there is no elevator access. But the views are worth the money and effort (and in my case, the aggravation of an old knee injury)!
