For the foreign students who went touring on Saturday, the trip was one of the best if not the absolute best trip we have been on. After always going to the mall to shop and relax, trying out something new was good for us. At the Kakum National Park was very tiring and dangerous. But some of us gathered courage to cross the bridges we normally see on TV. We never knew how dangerous the action was until we tried it. It was also funny to see people who were scared in the beginning get over their fears and later dance on the bridges.
Also, at Elmina Castle, we had a lot of fun. Although some of us may not like History, the way the tour guide explained everything made it fun and we made the best of it. We were locked in dungeons where black people were held and this taught us of the harshness and brutality the slaves faced. The saddening one was the torture the women faced as they were raped and killed. We even made a joke out of the governor who was mean to the slaves. Some students also got souvenirs in remembrance of the trip.
After all the exhaustion, we went to a hotel to enjoy our lunch and relax. Unlike other trips where we spend our money and get food, this time around the school provided us with food and drinks which we really appreciated.
Upon return, students were sad not because we were coming back to our studies but because we loved the trip.
This trip served as a relaxation and fun time for the juniors and a much needed stress relief for the IB2s.
