Journal Entry:
First order of bussiness was the Togo embassy to apply for a visa. That done we went and spent a couple hours at the internet cafe (email, email, and more email!) Went back and picked up our passports (now with Togo visas in them - multi entry even!) Went to the Benin embassy and dropped off the passports there (we'll pick them up tomorrow afternoon). Spent the rest of the afternoon looking into shipping agencies (the Benin embassy is out near the airport) and then had dinner and just hung out in Ghana's poshest hotel - Shangrala. Back at the campground it was travel planning and an other round of cards and the obligatory beer.
