Ecotourism Spotlight: Ghana on the UNESCO World Heritage map

Ghana, a former British colony on the west side of Africa, is an ecotourist's delight.

This is a story of a trip that started as a tourist and ended up in being an andventure in one of the most adventurous forests in the world. Quoting a superfamous 3D movie, I believe it's true: Pandora is here and I decided to volunteer to stop tree cutting and wildlife hunting. But first of all I decided to stop and listen to the people who live close to forest.
