Don’t forget our free excursion to Krokrofrom, the brass village located in the Bradt Guide to Ghana as “4 km past FOUR VILLAGES INN”. It’s our way of supporting this little visited craft village.

Family Ford, daughter Andrea Lily, Bev and Ken, had a few hours before travelling back to Accra, so off we went. After a full explanation of the involved lost wax process, they went to the store and bought a lot from a happy head brass smith Paul.

FORD FAMILY AT BRASS VILLAGE

Four Villages, a.k.a. madinghana, didn’t go home empty handed. Paul has given us a beautiful brass chess set and leather covered board to sell (GH C 100.00) . But until it goes, you can play to your heart’s content day after day after day.

Note: You’ll be able to read the Ford Family review “on line”. Hope Andrea Lily will mention the FOUR VILLAGES INN business centre! Well, it’s a variation on a theme….Andrea was finalizing contracts for a condo and she was scanning and sending documents to the U.S. Remember FOUR VILLAGES INN has free wireless internet!
