How to Make a Three-Hour Drive a Seven-Hour Nightmare

Categories: Ghana

Yesterday afternoon, a group of us began the drive back to Accra from Patriensa. As you'll see in a future blog entry, our car broke down and we spent hours hobbling back to Accra, towed by a feed truck whose tow rope kept breaking from the front of the car. In the meantime, you can hear two podcasts I posted from my mobile phone while we were stranded – yes, I managed to have mobile phone access in rural southern Ghana.

First podcast [1]: around 7:15pm, somewhere north of Accra
Second podcast [2]: about two hours later, a bit closer to Accra, but far from anywhere near our final destination
