A big shout out to Chapters…with their apparently efficient order filling processes, the two books I ordered about Ghana arrived in the mail quicker than expected …for free shipping…and beating the mail strike. I had opted for one book on Customs and Culture and the second a travel guide. I also ordered the gynormous Steig Larsson book #2 for the plane rides. Free, quick shipping…nice!
I started the Culture and Customs book already and there is lots of interesting information….
Ghana is home to the world’s largest artificial lake ~ Lake Volta – which feeds…you guessed it, a hydro plant! It’s over 2 million, yes million, acres!
Ghana is also home to the world’s largest crater lake ~ Lake Bosomtwe ~ 19 square miles and 262 feet deep!
The climate section I read starts with a simple statement…”Ghana is hot.”
Yup, knew that! 🙂
