The drive to Akosombo took us along the same road as to Agomanya, but this time we were going about an hour further. Near Agomanya we encountered a parade celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president.
A little further, there was a large group of Muslim families going to the festivities. The clothing West African Muslims wear is different from the styles of other West Africans.
This would not have been remarkable had I been in the north, but learning that there was such a large percentage of Muslims in this southern area of Ghana was interesting to me.
Too bad for me, there wasn’t enough time to stop and see the parade. But what I did see was like a fashion show, and I loved it!
Past Agomanya there were many small towns, one blending into the next. The nearby hills made a pretty backdrop.
This being near the Volta Region and an area of higher rainfall, everything was lush, green and lovely.
