Over the ten or eleven days I spent in Koforidua I did a lot. I worked at the Ability Bikes Bike shop almost every day, working closely with the worker-owners, and getting to know customers. I spent a day at Jackson Park watching the members of Ability Bikes play wheel chair basketball. I rode my bike to the top of closest mountain, and rode to Akaa waterfalls with Adjen. I explored the local markets, met shop owners and other bicycle mechanics. I walked around the neighborhood where I was staying, and traveled to a local farm to see how bicycles were used there. I was able to snap a few hundred photos along the way, here’s a few of my favorites.
