Elmina, Ghana  This was a difficult trip that was definitely worth it. Here we visited Elmina Castle, where slaves were captured and sent to the Americas, first by the Portuguese and then by the Dutch. It was very difficult to relive the horrible atrocities that took place, but it was very worthwhile to acknowledge and remember this horrible stain in human history. Highly recommend a visit
