Later that night we rode a tro tro (crappy old vans that are used for public transportation) to a popular area named Osu with lots of places to eat and hang out. We ended up spending the evening there listening to African music and learning some dance moves from locals while they laughed at us. Ghanaians are amazing dancers! We had to take several taxis back to the hotel and one of our taxis got pulled over by a cop (this was sometime after 1am). Our tour guide told us the police aren't allowed to carry guns but this cop had some sort of machine gun with him and most likely pulled them over because there were 5 white kids in the taxi. Bribing is pretty standard here so my friends gave him 20 cedi/$12 but that wasn't enough and he wanted them to pull into the police station - baaaad idea. Danny ended up giving the cop 80 cedi/$50 and he let them go. The taxi ride itself only cost 6 cedi to put that into perspective. Our tour guide told us 80 cedi is probably more than he makes in a month.
