going to Ghana in February 2008

Hello everybody,

I am married to a Ghanian guy who lived most of his life in Europe.I said this because he is not helping me about Ghana so I decided to ask you.
We are going to Accra to visit his family.
I am wondering what things I should do there.Is it safe me and my daughter to go around without him.
Is there big shopping centres to get food for my 6 years old daughter as she is a pain when it comes to food:).

we will stay 10 days.Please tell me which places I should see.
Thanks

    Hi, this might be a little late but I just wanted to reassure you that in my experience Ghana is a very safe place, I am a 23 year old woman and lived there for three months by myself through their elections and felt safer there than in England. The most dangerous thing i experienced was the driving! I didn't spend much time in Accra so can't help out much with the shopping centre but I found you can get bread and something to spread on it almost anywhere. As for things to do Cape Coast castle is well worth a look and only a 3 hour journey from Accra.
