Ghana Border Crossing Guard, Ghana

Gadget

Three hour Ghana Border checkpoint delay. This Ghana Border Crossing guard delayed our Ford Van from going trom the Cote d'Ivoire Board direct to the Aflao, Lome Border. He said the driver was drunk, and two Togo boys did not have passports. He said he called a new van to come pick us up. It was stupid, the guards ask me what we would do in the USA, I said the police would take him to jail. Well in the end, they never called another van, and all three men were allowed to proceed after they agreed to pay a bribe. The problem here was tne negotiations over the amount of bribe took three hours. There reason to take the direct van to the Lome Border was now of no value, I arrived at the border after the border closed.
