Friday afternoon (the end of week one) students came to class prepared for their home stay weekend with their host family. Can you see their excitement? Here are photos of each group heading off to their home stay, and also a pic with Papa Attah sending each of them off. We have a debriefing meeting planned for Sunday afternoon to hear all their wonderful stories and cultural observations.
This coming week will be full of classes three days this week with Professor Burgess, a lecture on ethnic groups in Ghana from University of Ghana professor, an all-day excursion to the Eastern Region for a bead-making practicum, and a visit to the King of Krobo and Queen Mothers and a Krobo cultural discussion. Do you think we’re busy? Then at the end of the week we are off to Cape Coast, for three nights where we will tour the Cape Coast area and the University of Cape Coast, visit one of the largest remaining slave castle/dungeons and spend time debriefing from this experience, and the next day walk through the Kakum National Forest, where the brave at heart can walk the canopy walk, which is a series of seven rope bridges connected to mammoth trees of the forest.
