Liati Wote and Tafi Atome

This is a bit overdue, but these are some photos from my experience overseas in Ghana, West Africa. These particular photos are from my trip to the village of Liati Wote between Lake Volta and the Ghana/Togo border. My gang spent the weekend with our new friend from Canada and the Queen of the village. We were invited to a ceremony to honor the ancestors for sparring the life of the Queen’s brother. He had previously been in a car accident almost losing his eye and shedding a lot of blood. The village offered libations to their ancestors. After rituals were performed, the village invited us to party with them and celebrate life. The next day we hiked to a small waterfall stopping along the way to see how Palm Wine and Palm Gin are made. At the end of the weekend, I split from the group and traveled to the Monkey Sanctuary in Tafi Atome. Clicking on the image below will take you to a Flickr Slideshow…
