Flashback Friday

It’s been a wonderful month exploring Ghana πŸ’ƒπŸΎ So much dancing, learning, and meeting great people. Here are random(ly awesome) photos from some experiences I haven’t already posted.  Enjoy!

 

My first visit to the market in Teshie Nungua
  
I still can’t believe I walked on a narrow wooden plank over the top of a rain forest 😳
  
The following are pictures from the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park
  
    
  
The following pictures are from the W.E.B. Dubois Memorial Center
  
    
    
  
Unfortunately it was closed when I visited but I’ll be back to check it out
  
The following pictures are of the Slave River historical site. This river was the last time the men and women were allowed to bathe before being sold and shipped off into slavery.
 
Artwork on the fence outside of the site depicting the reality the men and women captured for slavery faced
  
    
    
Where the men and women were auctioned off before being sent to the Elmina or Cape Coast castle to await the ships.

I’m still making a separate post for food but this tilapia with banku is my new Sunday ritual because it’s basically a religious experience πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ˜©
  
I had a blast last night working out and networking at the Fit Ghana event.
