Trip to Accra, Kumasi, Coconut Grove-Ghana. Any info?

Any information that I could recieve about these areas in Ghana-including culture, spirituality, arts, sights, etc. would be appreciated. I am travelling with a university group (Depaul University) for three weeks (Nov. 29- early Dec.). Spending money, things needed to bring, etc, a plus.

Just returned from Ghana in Aug. Travelled by road from Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire to Accra. Take US$, cash and traveller's cheques. Exchange money inside Ghana, but only enough to carry you through your trip. The Cedi has no value outside the country and there are huge restrictions re taking money out of the country. Also watch out for corrupt officials. They expect and demand bribes (i.e. what do you have for me?). My answer was usually "a smile and a handshake". You're welcome to contact me via e-mail if you have any more specific questions.
