Cape Coast

I'm in Cape Coast on the slowest internet connection ever, so this can't be long.

I love it here. It's rather on the hot side, though nights are cold. There are goats and chickens everywhere. People have been very friendly - though few have been too friendly. Everyone loves Obama and there are signs, t-shirts, photos, and plaques everywhere commemorating his visit. I've slowly started to buy a few things, now that I've gotten more accustomed to prices and everything. We climbed up to a fort yesterday and toured the castle today. Plans to go to Kakum National Park, Elmina Castle, Dixcove beaches and Kumasi before we cross into Togo, perhaps on Saturday. Time is flying far too fast!
