Cape Coast Excursion

The team took a road trip to Cape Coast today where we toured 500 yr old Elmina Slave Castle. It was very enlightening and educational to hear about the history of Ghana's slave trade and to see the actual holding cells and "point of no return" doorway.

On the way home we stopped for a
few minutes and played in the ocean. We also enjoyed some amazingly sweet pineapple on the roadside. We got an up close look at a local delicacy called grasscutter (bush rat) and feasted on fried plantain chips.

Our day ended with shepherd's pie and Cape Coast pineapple.

Fun day with the team!
