Ghana @ 55 – Ready for business

I am currently working with a couple of colleagues on a project about the business environment of Ghana to pitch to potential investors, well, classmates.

It is one of the highlights of my semester so far and as the date for presentation approaches I feel extra proud that my colleagues are genuinely sold on the huge opportunities for business in Ghana.

So I put up the draft presentation in celebration of Ghana’s 55th independence.

For students or business persons who do a lot of presentation, you will find that is a great presentation tool.

Please comment if you are not able to access my presentation.

Happy Independence Day! Happy Holiday!! I am proud to be a Ghanaian!!!

AbraErica Hospitalities – not your usual get-away location

This blog post is about a beautiful get-away location I discovered during the easter holidays and I figured it would be to the public good to share the discovery [and maybe give my friend’s hotel some free publicity].

I hope the pictures below will give you a glimpse of the coziness and adventure AbraErica Hospitalities has to offer and appeal to your sense of adventure to go enjoy the experience.

The first thing that hits you when you walk from the reception area to the balcony/ bar is the breathtaking view of the rest of the Volta Region; hills, rivers, villages and islands. You will want to carry a telescope just so you can fully enjoy the view below.

All this while you will be enjoying the best weather there is to enjoy at such a high altitude; AbraErica is located on the face of a hill and almost at eye-level with the highest habitable ground in Ghana – Mt. Gemi.

Hiking to the summit of Mt. Gemi is a must-do as well as visiting other natural landmarks and interesting tour locations like the Wli Falls, Tafi Monkey sanctuary, and a (former) slave market. Taking ones time to visit these locations adds to the total experience of lodging at AbraErica, an opportunity one should explore fully.

Besides a great location, wonderful weather [with a high tendency to experience some 30mins of relief rainfall every other day], you can be assured of a dedicated staff, great customer service and a serene atmosphere.

There is a generator that serves as backup when power is cut. There is an in-house chef who makes great dishes and does vegetarian as well.

The deal clincher is that a single-bed room and breakfast is Thirty-five Ghana cedis and a double-bed room and breakfast will set you back Forty Ghana cedis. But if you have plans of going with a number of friends or work mates, you will want to get on the phone and get a discount because you just might get a deal!

Now, that is a get-away location suitable for adventurers, writers looking for inspiration and some quiet and workers who want get away from the stress of city life.

PS. If you’re traveling in large numbers, you can get a free ride from Ho to AbraErica. Just visit their website and make your reservations already!
