Student Choice Awards 1 - Ghana

Sunrise, taken from the bus window on one of our first field trips.

My teachers were asked to choose two of their images which best represented the first half of our time in Ghana. They could be of something which touched them emotionally, or just made them laugh, but in some way they visually represented the Ghana experience of the first 3 1/2 weeks.

Enjoy their experience as told through photographs.

Helping fishermen in the Bay of Guinea bring in their morning catch.

Teachers celebrating.

Trying unusual foods is the theme for these two photos - fish heads served at lunch at school, and fu-fu, a native dish. When in Rome.....

A few of the students had drums carved at the Cultural Center in Accra, and received lessons afterwards.

The waterfront in Tema, where we stayed for our 7 weeks.

Our first field trip, to Mole, was also our first glimpse of native wildlife. Baboons are extraordinary creatures.

The students also made a strong impression; many have high aspirations.

Beautiful country, and beautiful people. The first part of our journey is considered a huge success.
