I've had to travel a lot over the last few years, and doing so I ended up collecting many frequent flyer points. Eventually, I collected enough to book a free trip! Even with all the world's most beautiful destinations at my fingertips, the place I really wanted to go to was more...off the beaten path. I had heard about a city in Ghana called Agbogbloshie where pretty much all our electronic waste is being dumped, and decided that I wanted to see exactly where our old computers, dishwashers and blenders end up. Turns out there are amazing things going on there! It's essentially one big recycling village, and a very fascinating place.
