Day 7: Accra (Thursday, April 9)

We were up before 5 AM today to rush down to Accra and meet THE president of Ghana. We were all excited...after we got a lot of sleep on the way there, stiff necks or no. 

Dressed in our Sunday best and bearing awards for Nana Sarpong and His Excellency Atta Mills, we went to a former slave castle, where the presidents do their executive work, and had a very nice meeting overall. Unfortunately, we couldn't take our cameras along - there is a recording of our meeting, and we do have at least one copy, but we're still trying to get the photos.

At any rate, the day passed much more slowly after that. We didn't have anything else scheduled, so after lunch, we took some well-deserved time to relax and unwind a bit.

Tomorrow was much more eventful, I can assure you, but for now, I'll have to bow out. See you next time.
