    Anyone here been to western Africa? I am heading to Ghana for 2 - 3 weeks for a study abroad trip. Does anyone have any helpful advice for traveling to this part of the world. I know it is not the safest place to be traveling as a gay man. I will be in the Ashanti and Alfonso North Districts in central Ghana.

    Thanks guys!

    Ghana is actually a very nice place to visit. If you're feeling suicidal.

    Jokes aside Ghana is one of the worst places to go if you're gay: because of the anti-gay laws and the alarming hight rates of HIV infections in the gay community - 10 times higher than in any other part of the world. Never been there but my advice would be: stay celibate.

    even if it wasn't anti-gay or whatever, you'd still have an issue with that place because it contains black people and you don't like black people.


    You're so subtle at your race baiting. You are one stupid fucktard.

    I plan on staying celibate. Won't have time for "fun anyways, I will be working 8 - 10 hours a day in the rural villages doing GIS work.

    ∆ This is why you're one of the most hated members here. You insert race into threads where it has ZERO to do with the topic. Transparent much? I guess the reason you're a 30 year old virgin living in your mommy's basement is because of racism too. Boo hooo. icon_cry.gif

    So . . . I guess asking for advice via RJ forum was better in theory.

    I'm guessing you already know this, but be sure to take anti-malaria treatment ahead of time, as malaria is easy to catch in those parts. Ghana is probably the most stable country in West Africa, so there isn't too much to worry about, you just have to stay alert and use common sense.

    If you want serious advice dude, don't go. That place is a shithole. No study program would be worth spending 3 weeks in that awful place in my opinion.

    Ginger, there are some really unbalanced, hateful racists on this board. They are immersed in their hatred of black people. They feel righteous in their hatred and bigotry but dislike having the label attached to them. Such myopic, distasteful, cowardly folks, seemingly devoid of genuine love for anyone but themselves, if even that.

    Anyway...here are some interesting sites I found.

    Ghana is not a shithole. icon_confused.gif
    Like many other countries in the world, you shouldn't shout from the rooftops your sexuality. I hear it is a nice place from people who have actually been, I would like to go there some day. The best thing you should do is read about it before you go.

    Make sure you see cocoa beans being harvested - it looks like a really interesting process. I saw some of the process done at the Chocolate Museum in Cologne but would be good to be there and see/touch/taste the beans straight from the tree!

    jmusmc85 saidGhana is a place to go if you want to help those poor little kids you see on the tele.

    It's not a vacation destination.

    Be prepared to live in shit for a few days/weeks/months how ever long you're going.



    I'm sure Ghana is much nicer than where your people come from

    the irony. icon_lol.gif you seem to have selective memory talking about yourself, mr. resident racist. must be the painkillers.

    and you can't call me a fucktard because i'm not fucking. i'm a virgin. it should be vetard=retard with a v-card. icon_wink.gif


    HEEEYYY!!! I thought I was the resident racist...icon_cry.gif


    Wrong. ALL White people are racists in Pazzy's mind. After all, it's the White people who keep him from leaving his mommy's basement or finding a boyfriend.

    i said that shit about you because you never have anything positive to say about black people or anything related to black people and you drop sneaky racist comments. you're ready to talk about how i turn threads into race baiting or whatever BUT you turned this thread into something that it isn't. you wouldn't have said shit if this was about russia and we all know how that place is anti-lgbt too so cut it.

    dude was just asking for advice on traveling to ghana, a place you never been to and really can't speak about, and you trolled the fuck out of his thread. talking about it's a shithole. fucker, you live in new orleans. remember that.


    do you think it's the best part of New Orleans?

    You'll need to ban Pazzy for that to happen. 80% of all race threads are started by him. True fact.

    icon_lol.gif <--- that's all i can do because that's a lie. i've NEVER made a race thread. anytime you have to resort to telling lies, then you know you lost. i only address race matters when it's appropriate such as this thread. you know exactly what the fuck you were doing when you were trashing ghana out of nowhere when you never been to either country. i never seen you say shit about russia during the olympics yet you have something to say about ghana as if you know about that country like the back of your hand. answer this. have you ever been to ghana? how do you know that it's a shithole? just because a place is anti-lgbt doesn't automatically make it a shithole. as i said, you live in louisana, a known anti-lgbt state.

    why you always gotta pull this weak shit when you get called out on something that you do wrong? all ready to blame the next person instead of just admitting that you're wrong. you stay failing and still keep trying. stop embarrassing yourself.
