Some two days oo!😉 On the 19th of January my friend and now junior sister Laura arrived at Kotoka airport in Accra. We started our trip from there and spent 5 days in the capital. After a frustrating first day at the immigration office, we went to see typical sightseeing places on the second day.

The second day was more relaxing, at the beach of Kokrobite (pronounced Kokrobite, not Kokrobait as a Non-Ghanaian like me might think and then get laughed at ;))

Ah, that day, if I think well, the relaxing was a bit disturbed by, well, white-women-hunting men. And, frankly and less polite speaking, these people were so annoying, by noon we had to leave and go back to Accra.

It was better in Ada foah, the next day, where we were the only ones (!) at the whoole beach of Maranatha (or so).
Unfortunately because the Trotro took 4 hours to bring us to Ada foah, we arrived late and couldn’t spend the whole day, but we enjoyed anyway…

The following day, we continued to Cape Coast, a two hours drive from Accra, peanuts, after the Ada Foah trip.

Elmina and Cape Coast Castles were both used as “slave castles”.
After the Portugues settled in Elmina in the 16th century, the castles were used for keeping slaves from 1700 until the abolishment of slavery. And by keeping I mean torturing, humiliating and treating like animals. I know you know, but seeing it like this is seriously painful.

The last day in Cape Coast we spent in Kakum Nationalpark. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any animals, but we did walk from tree to tree 40 metres from the ground.
