WHERE WE ARE
Ghana is in West Africa, on the Guinea Gulf between Ivory Coast and Togo. The village that has welcomed us is called Pabi, that in the local language (Twi) means "find something".
Pabi is in the Eastern Region, in the West Akym District (on the Suhum-Asamankese road), about 80 kms from the capital Accra. This is one of the most fertile regions in the country, where farms alternate with areas still covered by the tropical forest with its lush vegetation: the surrounding hills are ideal for hiking, but if you prefer to idle about, you can enjoy the fresh river's waters or a relaxing bird watching session...
HOW TO GET TO ANANSE VILLAGE
FROM ACCRA - By car: take the Kumasi road until you reach Suhum (70 kms from the Accra's barrier), where you'll branch on the left, taking the road to Asamankese On this road you only drive about 20 kms, until you'll see the signboard Pabi-Ananse Village. By public transport: take a trotro (minibus) to Suhum at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle or at Achimota. Tell the driver (or the mate) you'll get down at Suhum's roundabout. In that same station (Suhum roundabout) take a trotro or a collective taxi to Asamankese, tell the driver (or the mate) you'll get down at Pabi.

FROM CAPE COAST - Take the Accra road until you reach the Winneba roundabout. At the roundabout turn left (direction Swedru). Drive on pass Swedru until you reach Akroso(from Winneba it's about 50 kms). At Akroso take the road on the right to Asamankese (you'd better ask, there's no signboard) and at Asamankese take the road to Suhum, on which you'll find Pabi (it's only 13 kms from Asamankese).
