And just like that 2019 ended with a BANG 💣 and 2020 started off with a vibe, many vibes actually.
The Everyday Froday team ushered in the new decade in style with a trip to Ghana honoring the Year of Return. From parte after parte to eating that Ghana Jollof, we had a great time.
Our trip was organised by Tribe Dash who create amazingly meaningful experiences for groups looking to travel.
Buckle up for highlights:
📍Nkrumah Memorial park and Mausoleum:
No trip to a MAJOR capital city is complete without some sightseeing. Located in downtown Accra, the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial park and Mausoleum is the final resting place of Ghana’s first President. It houses rare artefacts related to Ghana’s Independence and uncovers the history of the Sub-Saharan struggle for independence.
We hustled our way through Makola Market, located in the center of Accra. Constructed in 1924, this market is not to be missed!
Home to beautiful Kente cloths
Ankara print jewelry,
bags and fans, vintage sports clothing, spices and shea butter.
Makola Market is a tourist haven!
The Cultural Centre showcases traditional handicrafts from all over Ghana. With workshops and galleries enabling you to learn more about Ghanaian culture, you’ll be immersed in history. Souvenirs, created in clay, wood, leather and metal can all be found there.
Where we turned up:
Detty Dezember 😉 in Ghana would not be complete without a major turn up….
🍹 We partied the nights away at Afronation, dancing on the beach to Burna Boy, WizKid and Ghana’s very own Stonebwoy.
🍹AfroChella did not come to play. We experienced Ghanaian culture, music, food and fashion
🍹 DJ Juls helped us celebrate the first day of the decade with his epic throwback parrrry, where he played the best of Old School, Hip Hop and R&B all night long.
🍹 Bloom Bar and Sand Box kept us hydrated with their delicious happy hour cocktails #bloombarmademedoit 😉😉😉
Sightseeing in the sun can get hot, so our Plan.tain.ing and Powered by Jollof vest were super handy.
