Nomads of the Sea - Fanti Canoes from Ghana in Bonfi Port Conakry Guinea.
I spoke to the Captain - who said he had come from Accra - how far is that by sea, albeit in several stops? Fantis in Monrovia had told me that that was 7 days from Takoradi, so I figure 3 weeks to Conakry? My admiration and fascination with these marine nomads is growing. Days at sea, off the continental shelf, in a 15m dugout canoe, with no compass, charts, or radio - let alone GPS! Follow the fish and bring home the money!
