Emmanuel was the utmost professional compassionate, comforting and informative guide and friend I could asked for on this voyage. His characteristics mirror the sense of safety, comfort, love and spirit that lives in the people of Tafi. I was push to the limit of friendship and compatibility in a place and setting that offered a real glimpse into the beautiful people and place that is Ghana.
