Anomabu, Cape Coast and Efutu

Our friends RenĂ© and Emily arrived in Ghana on Jan. 2. Hooray! It’s great to have them here. They hung around Accra for a few days, during which we gave them a mini-tour of the city. I also brought them to my African dance class. They claim to have enjoyed it.The four of us left town on Friday afternoon for Anomabu, a beach town about 3 hours west of Accra. There we enjoyed the beach and the water. During a beach walk, we saw some local people. One was sleepy and found this boat to be comfortable. boat sleeper
Anomabu people Some carried things on their heads. A bunch of little kids were looking for small sea creatures and putting them in empty bottles. This little girl doesn’t mind carrying her bottle on her head. The woman on the right appears to have wood, perhaps for fuel.
On Saturday we went to Cape Coast, the former capital of Gold Coast (Ghana’s colonial name under the British). It seemed like a bustling place. This vendor carries a mini-convenience store on her head. Cape Coast vendor
Cape Coast Castle We visited Cape Coast Castle, which was used as a dungeon and trading place during the slave trade. Thousands of people were kept there under horrifying conditions while awaiting an unknown fate. Grim, to say the least.
We stayed at Hans Cottage Botel in Efutu. There we saw this interesting caterpillar. caterpillar
