Ghana Visit: 2007-12
2008-01-06 - Flew in on a C-130 on December 23 we were only going to stay over night in the capital Accra at the Labadi Beach Hotel. We were delivering mail and parts for the ship from sicily. the people were nice and the hotel staff was great, we left for the airport in the morning and started our preflight on the airplane and it didnt take long to find the overheat detection system on the plane was not functuning correcrly and after a couple hours of trouble shooting we found the problem and called home to have the part sent to us but of course it will take a couple days and we will now be spending christmas in Ghana. ohh well i guess there could be worse places to be away from family and friends. We hung out at the bar in the hotel alot and the beach, but mostly the bar because when you go to the beach you get swarmed by locals trying to sell you anything and everything so you cant enjoy it. We finaly got the part repaired the airplane and went back to sicily to finnish our detachment. I wouldnt trade my experience in ghana for anything i recomend it.
