After the stop at the Bolga smock tailors, next on the agenda was lunch. By the time we arrived in Tamale, we were both hungry so Stanley took us back to Swad, his favorite restaurant.
Swad is near the intersection of High Street and Choggu Road.
After lunch, heading south again, we crossed Ghana’s two major rivers, the White Volta and the Black Volta.
We passed village after village nearly obscured by robust corn crops. I began to notice the Land Rover’s engine seemed to be laboring a little. Stanley wasn’t driving quite as fast as usual.
About fifteen minutes later, there was a loud noise from the engine then a regular thunk, thunk, thunk. I was pretty sure I knew what that was. Stanley pulled over immediately.
