The far shores

I visited coastal Ghana in west Africa last year. After exploring the city of Accra, I rented a car and drove along the coast to the town of Anomabo. I walked by and admired the painted, wooden boats of fishermen. At Busua beach, I bought lobster from one of the merchants, went back to my lodgings and cooked a feast for myself. When I didn’t want to cook, I was able to buy tilapia and other fish from local restaurants.

I later headed to Cape Coast Castle to learn about the transatlantic slave trade. Slaves were crammed into the castle dungeons before they were shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas.

I then drove further west to Axim, and walked down the hill with a book for a peaceful day at the beach. This photo essay has images from my journey.
