Ghana

     Ghana and the slave coast, as it is often referred to. A visit to Ghana is not complete without stopping at Elmina castle and the fish market on the Atlantic coast. We also called upon the Cape coast castle which was for a short period back in the 17th century owned and operated by the swedes. Not anything I remember reading about in the school books. This fortification was used during the gold-trade and slave-trade era for hundreds of years, ending only in the late19th century. We had also time to go up to Kakum National Park and made a canopy walk above the treetops. I enjoyed this all in all very friendly country and its people, although you have to be careful when taking photographs - as always!
