What I brought:
- extra clothes, because I went through them faster than I could wash them all
I brought over large bills, which get a better exchange rate, and exchanged $550 for GHC1108 over the course of the trip. Most upscale hotels prefer US currency because its inflation rate is lower, so you don't have to exchange everything. In total, I spent about $820 in Ghana, one-third of which was gifts. I logged each cedi I spent here for reference.
