Ghana's unstable neighbors
When I first arrived in Ghana its western neighbor Ivory Coast was involved in a civil war. Now there is civil unrest in its eastern neighbor Togo. Police have fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters. They have also engaged in the mass arrest of demonstrators. Women have called a sex strike and are planning a naked demonstration on Thursday. If all that was not enough pirates have also attacked a Greek ship off the coast of Togo. I was planning on visiting Togo in a few months. Now I think Burkina Faso is the better option.
