Downtown Axim, Ghana
We had to go to downtown Axim, all of five minutes away from the beach hotel, and get gas. I’d noticed a bank across the street from the gas station the day before, so with luck we could get two things done at once.
While Stanley was gassing up the Land Rover, the amusing name of this fast food place nearby caught my eye. Lucky for me, a cute kid with a lovely smile stepped into the picture just as I was pressing the button.
Fort Santo Antonio de Axim, built by the Portuguese in 1503
Not far from the gas station, this caught my eye, also. I didn’t know until after I got home that it was another slave fortress. Damn! A missed opportunity. Well, something to put on my list for next time and a fine reason to stay at the Axim Beach Hotel once again.
