Morning walk on the beach, water must be 25 degrees. Took a ride into Elmina to visit the castle and did a tour with a guide (hate the tourist bit but good to to help the economy!) to hear about how it was a major trading point in slaves. 530 years old and only been under Ghanaian control for 55 of those.
Again very sad to see how the slave trade worked. Strange how people could do that to each other.
Tinkered with my packing procedures and now having a beer...haha bring the Canadians back!
