Our Day Trip

Went to Cape Coast yesterday. This is what it looks like:


Cape Coast castle is where the slaves from Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, etc were held before boarding the ships. They had to walk there from their respective countries and stayed in the dungeons for up to 12 weeks. Interesting side note, slaves created a rain harvesting system to collect water, but the British got their drinking water from ponds, causing them sickness.

Door of No Return.

Outside the Door of No Return...fishermen.

One intense experience to another - after the Castle we went to the national park where we walked above the trees on a frightening suspension bridge. Yikes!
