Real Heat



I arrived in the Ghanaian capital of Accra on the night of July 2 and the first thing that hit me when I walked out of the plane was the heat.  July is one of the coolest months, but still averages 23-27 degrees Celsius with humidity peaking at 95 per cent.

The taxi ride from the airport was eye opening. There were very few streetlights, the roads were half paved, and we were stopped by police with assault rifles who searched the car looking for armed robbers. It’s easy to read about Africa but very different to experience it yourself.
