Ghana: Busua

It wasn't Busua's fault that I didn't like the place. Located between Axim and Takoradi along the western half of the Ghanaian coast, Busua boasts a beautiful beach, a colonial fort in neighbouring Dixcove, safe swimming, and a chance to kick back once again from the rigours of African life. Unfortunately I left Axim with a familiar gurgling in my stomach, and by the time I got to Busua, exhausted from another buttock-clenching bounce along the roads of Ghana, I had no idea whether I wanted to relax on the beach or kick the local dogs.
