2 July 2011 – Atimpoku

Atimpoku lies on the banks of the Volta River between Accra and Ho, the capital of the Volta region. The Adome Bridge is the only bridge across the Volta River, so Atimpoku is a busy town with all the joys of travel in Ghana condensed into a few square kilometers. In the next few blog posts I will share some of these joys with you.

 

The photos here show the commerce and some of the homes in Atimpoku. The ones on the river tempt me to want to live in the Eastern Region.

 

 

This is a typical Ghanaian home along the river. What a view!

 

A small market place just before you reach the turn to the bridge. Adome bridge in the background.

Many Obruni’s from America and Europe live along the Volta River here.
