During my tenth week in Ghana, I finished a three-week traveling spree with a trip to Ada Foah, where the Volta River meets the ocean in the Gulf of Guinea. We took a “Bob Marley” boat across the river to Maranatha beach resort along the peninsula that separates the salt water from the fresh water. I have never seen somewhere so beautiful; with its palm trees, surrounding waters and white sand this beach looked like paradise. There was quite a big group from the university that went, and it was a fun mix of international and Ghanaian students. We had an all night beach party with a bonfire, and slept in little beach huts that had nothing but bug nets and mattresses directly on the sand. I slept with quite a few crabs that night! The absolute best part of the evening was the clear night sky with such little light pollution–creating a stunning, twinkling starry sky.
