March 8, 2013

It’s early on the morning of International Women’s Day, March 8, 2013. 6:30 am breakfast because guests, two parties, are both taking early morning planes to Accra. What else they have in common is that they both once used Kumasi’s big “International Standards – Local flavours” hotel, but have now switched over to the real […]

VALUE ADDED CHAIN IN KUMASI (1)

October 18, 2012

The government is pushing for synergy between regions, 4 in particular-Accra, Central, Ashanti and Western. Ha! Not when Accra gobbles up all arrivals and spits its tourists out for day trips. Enough. I’m realistic…the closer the value the stronger the link in the chain. Here’s an example…I discovered a new bakery. I had gone there, […]

If you’ve been following the saga of the sign, then you’ll be pleased to know that visitors destined for the south side of Kumasi won’t miss the turn off. The old sign will now more than do the job until the new blue sign is put up!

May 3, 2012

I never published this in July, 2011 despite all the work I put into the post…thought it might be shooting myself in the proverbial foot…how can I expect Vodafone to fix the problem when I am slamming them publicly… But what the hell, IT HAS HAPPENED AGAIN…Four Villages Inn has lost its internet a second […]

NEW ROUTE TO FOUR VILLAGES INN! ONLY…….

The phone rang here at Four Villages; and as it was my first night back from my trip to Canada, I thought it was our daughter phoning to see if we had made it safely to Kumasi. It wasn’t her. It was a guest who is coming on Sunday, a returnee by the way as […]

This story appeared on the OMG Ghana! facebook page. OMG stands for Oh My God in case ya didn’t know… That expresses my sentiment exactly. Absolutely not because of the content of the article, but because OMG !Ghana used a picture from a madinghana blog post. This picture was actually taken in March, 2010, by […]

About a year and a half ago, at madinghana, I bemoaned the fact that Ghana got little publicity through travel articles in high-profile publications. Well, funnily enough, one appeared in the Boston Globe and FOUR VILLAGES INN, KUMASI got top billing as THE PLACE TO STAY WHILE IN KUMASI!
