Finally in Cape Coast!! :o)

We woke up early this morning to go to church a Tesano Baptist Church. Their English service began at 7:30 and ended at 10:30! Needless to say, this was the longest church service many of us had been today. The service was very energetic and passionate. The members were all very welcoming. One of our favorite parts of the service was the solo of the hymn "It is well".

After eating lunch at Sun Lodge, we packed up all of our belongings and headed to Cape Coast. It was about a two and half hour drive. The ride was very scenic and beautiful. I could not peel my eyes away from the view. Cape Coast is more rural area than Accra; so it was like experiencing something entirely new.

We arrived at the Fair Hill Guest House and began to unpack our things. Mr. Baidoo arrived and informed us about his experiences starting the local school. Tomorrow will be our first day in the classroom. We will be observing the students and teachers in the classes we will be teaching in.

Dr. Clerico showed us the path to the beach; it is about a fifteen minute walk. The view was incredible!!! The beach is different than ones are accustom too. They are not used for recreation. Basically, we have the beach to ourselves. The waves are rough and the sand feels more grainy than the sand in Charleston.

We then came back to the guest house for a wonderful dinner and fresh pineapple for dessert!!!
