Street Food in Ghana - GIANT CHOP-BAR LUNCH and West African Food Tour in Accra!
 
25:16
This was an incredible day of street food in Ghana! ►Check out Jay: https://www.instagram.com/mukasechic/ ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Jay (Mukase Chic) is an amazing woman, so positive and talented, and so much fun to hang out with and eat with! She’s a food personality, a chef, a restauranteur, a blogger - she’s incredible. Check out her Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/mukasechic/) and YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8y8uGewOe2NAuNQALV_uaw). Anyway, so Jay took me an ultimate street food tour in Accra, here’s all the amazing food we ate: Red red (bean stew) and plantain - This was the first stop, a small stall that Jay has been eating at for years. They fry plantain, and then serve the plantain along with beans stewed in palm nut oil, and combine it with gari, which are cassava flakes. The result, is a filling and very satisfying combination of sweet and tangy plantains with salty oily beans. What’s key as Jay explained to me is the palm nut oil, which provides so much oil and fragrance. It was delicious, and a perfect way to begin this Ghanaian street food tour in Accra! Total price - 4 GHC ($0.90) Nima Market - Next we caught a taxi to Nima Market, known for its spices. We tried everything we could find, which was quite a lot of snacks here and there. The market was fantastic to walk around, full of action and energy. Coconut toffee Tigernuts - 1 GHC ($0.20) Masa - 1 GHC ($0.20) Zowey (adaakwa) - 1 GHC ($0.20) Kulikuli - 1 GHC ($0.20) Boiled egg - 1 GHC ($0.20) Fried cheese - 1 GHC ($0.20) Burkina - 3 GHC ($0.70) Bofrot - 1 GHC ($0.20) Peace Chop Bar (Chop Bar - Local Ghanaian restaurant) - Finally, to end this street food tour of Ghana in Accra, we stopped back at the chop bar that we had visited earlier in the morning. Seeing the cooking was sensational, it only made me hungrier for lunch. By the time we arrived back, they had already sold out of a few dishes, but there was still plenty enough to choose from. I tried the banku with goat meat, and it was fantastic. Total price - 36 GHC ($7.90) This was an incredible day of eating street food in Accra. Many thanks to Jay!

THE GAMBIA, AFRICA'S SMILING COAST | TRAVEL VLOG
 
10:55
Africa. The continent that never ceases to amaze me. My travels had taken me to southern Africa in the past but I was keen to explore west Africa. When cheap return flights for £170 per person became available to The Gambia, I couldn't have been more excited! It was the perfect opportunity to get my first taste of Africa's west coast. The Gambia is the smallest country on the African continent and is bordered on all side's by the country of Senegal, except for the west side which meets the Atlantic Ocean. Frequently dubbed the Smiling Coast of West Africa, I was keen to see for myself what The Gambia was like and what this small country had to offer. In this vlog, we touch down at Banjul international airport and begin our journey south. I hope you enjoy my first vlog in my Gambia series! I'm trying something a little different for this vlog series in making it a little more like a documentary, giving you information about the Gambia as well as my direct experience.

In this video I outline some of the observation I had made relating to hair during my travels across West Africa. I visited Gambia, Guinea Bissau and lived in both Nigeria and Senegal. I enjoyed my time in West Africa and learnt a great deal from each nation I visited. Natural Hair in West Africa is still not as common as it is in the west. However, there are small pockets across the state that embrace natural hair.

Village Food in West Africa - BEST FUFU and EXTREME Hospitality in Rural Ghana!
 
23:48
This was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Many thanks to Afia Tours (https://www.afiatours-ghana.com/) for taking on this amazing village food day trip in Ghana (Note: I paid for this tour, it is not sponsored, but I fully recommend it - it was awesome)! It was about a three hour drive from Accra to get to the village. The village was somewhere in the central Cape Coast region of Ghana (however no near to the coast, but much inland). The people from the village were so incredibly friendly, and it was one of the most genuinely hospitable and friendly villages I’ve ever visited. It was an honor and privilege to spend time at the village. As we arrived, they had already started cooking some Ghanaian food specialties. One the menu, we had banku with okra soup, fufu (a staple of West African food) with palm nut soup, and finally fried plantains with beans. All the food was incredibly good, and it was one of the best bowls of fufu I ate during my entire time in Ghana. Thanks again to Afia Tours (https://www.afiatours-ghana.com/) for setting this up!

Dreaming of Africa
 
03:45
In 1893, English woman Mary Kingsley set off on her first exploration of West Africa. Victorian ladies were not expected to travel abroad alone, especially to dangerous, unknown regions! Mary recorded her discoveries in the book 'Travels in West Africa'. She was the first person to climb Mount Cameroon, she studied Jungle tribes who were previously reported to be cannibals and discovered new species of river fish for the British Museum. Her book is a wonderful portrait of both her and the parts of Africa that she grew to love.

West African Food - EXOTIC DELICACY in GHANA!
 
21:37
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Bushmeat is a term that is used to often describe wild game meat in Africa. And while there some types of bushmeat that are not good or unsafe to eat - grasscutter - also known as a greater cane rat, is safe and one of the most popular types of bushmeat to eat in West Africa. It’s a delicacy! So while we were driving on our way to Elmina, Ghana, along the side of the highway, we stopped at some hunters, and bought a grasscutter. Later in the day, we met up with our host family, and we drove over to the Elmina fishing market. The market was amazing, bright and colorful, and energetic, with some unique fish and seafood available from the Atlantic. We bought some fish to go along with our grasscutter, and then we continued back to the house to start cooking. First for lunch, Mama made us a dish called Eto, a mash up of yam and palm nut oil, topped with eggs. It was a little on the dry side for me, but it was an honor to have a chance to try that special Ghanaian dish. For dinner we prepared the fish and grasscutter. The fish was made into Ghanaian groundnut or peanut soup, which is one of the best dishes I at in Ghana. The grasscutter was made into a bushmeat grasscutter light soup which included chilies, garlic, onions, ginger, and tomato. Finally, for the main start of the meal Mama made omo tuo, Ghana style rice balls. How does grasscutter taste? The greater cane rats run around the fields and eat grass, so unsurprisingly some parts kind of taste like grass. But they are a white meat, and have a similar look to chicken, but the meat is even sweeter. It was also surprisingly fall apart tender. I thought it was amazing! Across West African food, grasscutter is a very popular meat, and a delicacy eaten on special occasions.

Travels in West Africa Audiobook by Mary H. Kingsley
 
03:07
Listen to this audiobook in full for free with a 30-day trial: https://www.audiobooks.com/bookforfree/257516 Mary Henrietta Kingsley (13 October 1862 3 June 1900) was an British explorer and writer who greatly influenced European ideas about Africa and its people. Kingsley was an outspoken critic of European colonialism, a champion for indigenous customs, and a dedicated campaigner for a revised British policy which supported traders and merchants over the needs of settlers and missionaries. Her adventures were extraordinary and fascinating. Among other things she fought with crocodiles, fell into native spear traps and was caught in a tornado on the slopes of Mount Cameroon. She traveled in West Africa wearing the same clothes she always wore in England: long, black, trailing skirts, tight waists, high collars and a small fur cap. These same clothes saved her life when she fell into a game pit, the many petticoats protecting her from being impaled on the stakes below. This is her story in her own words of her adventures and the people and culture of West Africa. (Summary by Kehinde) Contact: [email protected]

The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

Unforgettable Meal - ASHANTI FOOD in Kumasi, Ghana | Ultimate West African Food Tour!
 
22:51
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ ►Watch the entire Ghana series: https://goo.gl/9mWUGk Thanks to Can Do Tours (http://www.candotours.com/) for arranging this amazing Ghanaian food experience for me. From Cape Coast, Ghana, we drove inland to Kumasi, a major city in the central Ashanti Region of Ghana. I was excited to sample authentic Ashanti food, and to spend just a short time exploring Kumasi. The drive from Cape Coast took about 4 hours. Fufu for Lunch - When we arrived, we were all quite hungry and so we stopped at a local chop bar (Ghanaian local food restaurant) for lunch. I’m not really sure of the name of this spot, or I don’t even think it really had a name written on it. But it was a popular neighborhood spot, especially known for their fufu - a West African staple food of pounded plantain and cassava. I had it along with a mix of palm nut soup and a variety of meats. Fufu mix - 18 GHC ($3.80) per bowl Ashanti Food Cooking in Kumasi, Ghana - The main activity food activity of the day was meeting a host family and going to their home to cook and experience authentic Ashanti Ghanaian food. Before going home, we stopped at a local market in Kumasi to buy some vegetables, and some essentials for the cooking, especially taro leaves. Kontomire stew - I didn’t really know what we’d be cooking, but learned it was a dish called kontomire stew, a stew made from fermented fish for flavor and mostly taro leaves (also called cocoyam in Ghana). The leaves were boiled and ground with garlic and spices, then doused in boiling palm nut oil to finish it. The dish was served with boiled green plantains and cocoyams that you could dip into the kontomire stew. It was also amazing to eat with avocado, and the highlight of my day was eating with the entire family. This is the final video from this Ghana food and travel series! If you haven’t seen all 7 videos, at the full playlist here: https://goo.gl/9mWUGk Thank you for watching this entire Ghana food and travel series.

County Officials Advise Those Planning to Travel to West Africa This Holiday Season
 
02:00
It's that time of the year when people travel to see old friends and loved ones. But for some, those plans might interrupted due to the outbreak of Ebola in West African countries. Members of the African Affair Advisory Group and The Coalition Against Ebola hosted the Ebola: Get Informed, Get Involved town hall meeting on Nov. 25 in Silver Spring to inform attendees about the current Ebola outbreak situation. "If you're going to return to either Liberia or Sierra Leone, Guinea or now even Mali that you need to be aware that you don't want to come in contact with somebody that is visibly sick. ... They [travelers] need to be aware when they come back they will have to be actively monitored for twenty one days," said Dr. Ulder J. Tillman, Montgomery County Health Officer. County officials said there are no restrictions for people to travel to countries impacted by the Ebola virus. Family members, however, are saying "Don't come." "Now, what we've seen though is many family members who are waiting to travel, when they call their family members in these affected countries they're saying 'Don't come. Just send the resources so that we can take care of ourselves." According to statistics shared during the event, as of November 11 more than 14,000 have been sickened with Ebola in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra. Of those, 5,165 have died. Bernice North, a Silver Spring resident and chair of the Silver Spring Advisory board, said she has relatives working in the medical field in West Africa, and agrees that community outreach and awareness is still necessary. "So, it's important to continue the conversation to educate ourselves. Not everyone is from Guinea, Liberia, or other countries affected by Ebola," North said. On Nov. 19, residents gathered for an interfaith prayer service for Ebola relief in Silver Spring. During the meeting, a county official said the state has been monitoring all travelers who left West Africa in the past few months as part of an Ebola prevention efforts. As of November, state health officials are currently monitoring 113 travelers, but none are from Montgomery County.

Africa Safaris and travel - Botswana, Zimbabwe & Zambia

African Safaris and travel - Botswana, Zimbabwe & Zambia - Africa trip Travel & Trips Videos 4K 🔔 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgBmYHhwlZg4stoGEaBHpOA?sub_confirmation=1 Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Africa has 54 sovereign countries—the most on any continent—and is the second largest continent in terms of both land area and population. Africa is bounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, by the Red Sea to the northeast, and by the Indian Ocean to the southeast. Africa is a vast continent spanning over 8,000km (5,000 mi) north to south and 7,500km (4,800 mi) east to west (not including islands) and contains a wide array of peoples, skin colours, religions, and cultures. Africa contains the world's longest river—the 6,650km long (4,100 mi) Nile River running from Burundi to Egypt—while the Congo River in the DRC is the second largest in terms of discharge as well as the deepest with a depth of over 230m (750 ft) in some spots. Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro is the world's tallest free-standing mountain at 5,890m (19,340 ft). Djibouti's Lake Assal is the second lowest point on Earth, the saltiest lake outside Antarctica, and one of the hottest places on Earth. While the first activity most people associate with Africa is safaris, there are endless possibilities for adventure. You can purchase crafts in markets, venture into the Sahara with a Tuareg caravan, visit pygmy villages, hike through jungle to watch gorillas, relax on tropical islands in the Indian Ocean, snack on exotic treats, travel down a river in a dugout "pirogue", travel across savannah on a colonial-era railway, and much more. Africa is a very diverse continent, with each country, or even each part of a country having its own unique culture. While it is common for people in the West to refer to Africa as if it was a single country, one should remember the sheer size of the continent, and that Africa is not one country but 54 different countries, meaning that it is impossible to make generalisations of Africa as a whole. Tragically misunderstood by many people as a land of poverty, corruption, war and famine, and simply as a land of suffering—a misconception only bolstered by the media and the numerous NGOs on the continent—Africa today is a vast continent with many bustling metropolises, friendly people, and amazingly diverse and beautiful landscapes. While there are some places resembling the stereotypical Africa of war, famine, and poverty, most of the continent is peaceful, well-fed, and of working class . See ========= Flora & Fauna ========== Many visitors are attracted by the African flora and fauna and several countries benefit from Safari tourism to African National Parks. Natural Wonders Africa is home to many famous natural wonders, from the Nile River, the world's longest river, to Victoria Falls. The continent is home to two of the world's four volcanoes with permanent lava lakes—the dramatic Mount Nyiragongo which rises hundreds of metres above Goma, DRC and Erta Ale in Ethiopia's stark Danakil Depression (the others are Mt.Erebus in Antarctica & Kilauea in Hawaii). Both volcanoes can be climbed by the adventurous tourist to stand at the rim gazing in awe at the bubbling lava below, an especially incredible sight at night! Landscapes ============ Historical civilizations While the continent's diverse and unique wildlife is often all that is mentioned in regards to African travel, as home to the oldest civilizations on the planet, Africa has equally impressive cultures and history. The most famous civilization on the continent, and arguably in the world, is that of ancient Egypt. From the southern city of Abu Simbel to Luxor and all the way north to Alexandria and Cairo, including the Pyramids of Giza, the only surviving of the original Seven Wonders of the World and the most iconic symbols of this ancient kingdom. Sites from the Nubian-Kushite Kingdom that broke away from Egypt can be found in Sudan, such as Gebel Barkal and many other pyramids in Meroe. Ethiopia offers many ruins from the ancient Axumite Kingdom where the Queen of Sheba ruled. The obelisks and Dungur ruins in Axum were built prior to the kingdom's conversion to Christianity, while many other great monuments, such as the Ezana Stone and the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion, where the Arc of the Covenant is said to be stored, were built after the conversion as religious sites. Other famous Christian structures built later by the kingdom's successor, the Abyssinian Empire, especially during the 12th and 13th centuries, can also be found in Lalibela.
