Comments: Thank you for extending the life of Navrongo and Lawra, and West Africa in general, so well into the hearts of people who may otherwise never have known that such places exist. Seeing your scenes of Navrongo, and especially reading the experiences of others in your guestbook, brought tears to my eyes remembering my own travels in Northern Ghana. There must be something very special about this place for it to hold such significance for so many people. Some places in this world are just so beautiful. Medase.
