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.

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!

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.

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. It was an amazing trip, tried and learned about so many delicious foods, and it was an honor to meet and interact with so many generous and friendly people.

Dust From Africa Travels All The Way To The US
 
01:12
The annual dust storm that carries sand from Africa to the US has expanded its destination range. The annual dust storm that carries sand from Africa to the US is expanding its destination range. Florida has been a settling ground for it, but this year the stream is making it further into the south and southwest regions. Each year around late June due to thermal expansion of the equatorial atmosphere, an enormous quantity of dirt is suspended above the Sahara and blown across the Atlantic Ocean at an altitude of thousands of feet. Approximately 40 million tons ends up in the Amazon River Basin, and a good portion of it lands in the Everglades as well. That's a good thing, as the sand contains beneficial nutrients and helps replenish soil that's been stripped by heavy rains. Along the way the dust stream helps cool ocean temperatures and reduce the amount of hurricane-feeding energy the water gives. What the longer-term effects of it landing further inland are remain largely unknown. For the immediate future, residents of the newly affected areas are warned that they may experience a spike in allergies and have to wipe the Saharan sand off of their cars.

First Time Trying GHANAIAN FOOD!! Amazing Palm Nut Soup in Accra, Ghana, West Africa!
 
18:10
First time eating Ghanaian Food in Ghana, West Africa! ►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ This was Day 1 of my trip to Ghana - searching out amazing Ghanian, West African food! So I wasn’t totally sure all that I was doing - but this is part of the reason I love traveling and going to places I have never been before - it gives you the chance to learn, and try new things. Heavy-Do Chop Bar - First restaurant we stopped at in Accra, is Heavy-Do Chop Bar, don’t you love the name? Now a Chop Bar in Ghana is a local style restaurant, oftentimes in a home-like compound or in the backyard. This place is quite well known in Ghana, and they are known for a reason, their food is incredible. I didn’t know it until eating there, but one of their specialties is omo tuo, which are Ghanaian style rice balls, eaten with a variety of different meats and soups. I ordered the rice balls with palm nut soup and red fish. It was insanely delicious! Lolonyo Tilapia Base (Duncan's Pub) - For dinner on my first day in Accra, Ghana, we headed over to a legendary place to eat grilled tilapia. The actual restaurant is called Lolonyo Tilapia Base, but most people know it as Duncan's Pub, which is right next to the fish spot. In the evening, people come here to eat grilled Ghanaian style tilapia, and it’s excellent. Along with the grilled fish, the part I loved the most was the pepper sauce - a chili mix that was extraordinary. This was just my first day eating Ghanaian food in Accra, Ghana. I learned a lot, and I have a few more amazing West African food tours of Ghana coming 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.

Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. 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.
