Emilie and Simon in Keta
Keta used to be a large town, and it was the capital for all of the Volta Region, until sea erosion caused most of the town to be lost into the sea. The large rocks that you see are attempts by the government at stopping the water intruding further into the town.
Keta lagoon is to the north of Keta, and at some points there is leass than 1km between the lagoon and the Atlantic, so many people are worried that one day the entire town will be lost to the sea.

The remaining part of the fort. The rest is now in the Atlantic, along with most of the town.
