Elubo Ghana

Elubo Ghana
Thursday, August 10, 2006

I am laying here in Bed in the Osamdi Hotel, I am paying 4000 CFA and I think the price is 50,000 Cedi; therefore I am paying 3 U.S. too much because I used CFA. The Forex person rooked me at the exchange for 50,000 Cedi of Ghana money because I could not count, hear, and understand his English. I feel like I went two steps down the chain of civilizations when I went from Ivory Coast to Ghana. Ghana seem so far rude, but I am in Elubo, a border town in West Africa it is a stupid on my part to think it would be friendly and nice, border towns are where the persons that do not fit in anywhere go to stay. They do not have to be one of anything, they are half of nothing.

There are two Hotels here for sure, and maybe more, the places is very small, I now realize I could have walked from the Border to the Hotel in less than 10 minutes, and to the Bus Station in five, everything is straight away from the Border.
