Day six of the Ghana road trip: continuing northwards, we expect to reach Mole National Park today and avoid a disaster along the way.
I had brought what I thought was sufficient backup equipment for my photographic exploits: a 4 gigabyte memory chip in the camera, a 4 gigabyte flash drive and a second flash drive. I hadn’t even filled up the 2 gig memory card I took with me last year to Veracruz, so I thought I was being more than prepared. Imagine my horror when about an hour after leaving Techiman, my camera’s memory filled up!
As we approached Bole, a small town, I kept a sharp eye out at the businesses on both sides of the road. Even in a small town, there might be a business center or a bank where a kind soul might let me use a computer to transfer my images off the memory card and onto the flash drive.
This is the man who saved my photographic life in Bole.
There are a great number of truly wonderful people in this country. You should visit Ghana.
