Left Pink Hostel in Asylum Down on 5th Cres off Samora Machel Rd or Mango Tree Av.(info just in case someone is interested in a very reasonable,clean, AC, 4in bunk beds w/ own bath incl breakfast stay in Accra). Taxi took us to STC station altho we requested tro tro to Atimpoku. Getting there at 3 pm we thought we were just in time for bus so got tickets instead of looking for trotro. Unfortunately, ticket lady misheard our request and we were issued 4 tickets to Kpandu instead of Kpong the junction were we would transfer. After some discussion we figured this would be an adventure since it was not a town in the LP and was on Lake Volta our main interest in the area. The bus did not leave at 3 or 4 but at 5 we finally headed out of town, now in Friday rush hour traffic! As luck would have it we got as far as Tema an hour out of Accra and the bus broke down...after some explaining to a manager who just happened to be on board he signed our tickets to give us refund or another ticket(later we realized that we couldnt use it, ha). Flagging down a taxi which took us to St Thomas Hotel nearby...probably has never seen a foreigner...nice,clean,AC,& restaurant.
