We saw evidence of the overabundant rains of 2009 between Tamale and the Navrongo junction, where we would turn off towards Sirigu. Fields were flooded, creeks became rivers and rivers turned into lagoons.
It must have been a catastrophic year for many Ghanaians.
I wondered what the road to Sirigu would be like. I had initially been advised that the road to Sirigu would be impassable during the rainy season. Stanley hadn’t thought so, but with all the water we were seeing everywhere, I began to wonder.
Stanley thought we could go to the Sirigu guest house and check it out first. If the accomodations weren’t to our liking, we would continue to Navrongo, then visit Sirigu the next day.
