I always love butterfly so when I found out there’s a butterfly walk near Kpalime, Togo, I hired a car from the lake resort in Lome to go there. People told me it would took me 2 hours to get there and OFCOURSE IT TOOK MORE THAN THAT! I went there at around 11am and arrived there at 2pm. If anyone want to see the butterfly, it’s better to arrive there at noon since all the butterfly will come and drink water in the waterhole![Read more…]
I am currently in Lome, Togo staying at a beach resort again. To be honest, I am sick and tired of waiting for visa approval but traveling around West Africa required you to obtain tourist Visas before you enter their countries and they make it really hard for you to get it. I do not want to say why they do that but that’s the fact. Even after you pay huge amount of money, they still do not want to give it to you. Anyway, I like lome afterall:) It’s a much cleaner country than Ghana and people are less agressive. They sell many different kind of vegetables in the market and the food are delicious there. Togo used to be a French colony afterall so I found all the African countries that used to be a french colonies tend to have really really good food!
