This past week in Ghana was extremely busy, but we were finally able to relax with a weekend trip to the beautiful Cape Coast. Upon arrival, we attended a traditional ceremony in a small village there. It was difficult for me to follow what was happening during the ceremony because no English was spoken, so I let my camera take me around the edges of the ceremony to photograph those attending. Often times it’s more fun for me to find pictures away from the main event. In addition to the ceremony, our group was able to tour both the Elmina Castle and Cape Coast Castle. It was humbling to walk the same paths that thousands of slaves stepped before me.
Our return to Accra brought us to the farm of Kofi Asare
Opoku, where we learned about various plants and fruits, and then to an
orphanage where we enjoyed an afternoon playing soccer with the children there.
