I was going to write a long rant about this, but there’s no point. So I’ll just say this.
1. It makes no difference whether you enter Togo through the official border or the illegal one. Tried both. Your choice is simply whether you wish to be screwed by people in uniform or people without. Choose wisely. Choose unwisely. Makes no difference.
2. If you ever want a reason to feel like Ghana is progressing, visit Togo by land.
I’m sure my Togolese brethren are wonderful people.
But by the time you go through Togolese customs, you’ll miss Ghana Police.
