    Travel Journal from Ghana Cape Coast, Ghana | Fri Oct 12, 2012

    Almost one week down and three weeks to go! So this week was all about villages, schools and canopy walking. On Monday, I met with my organization HEPENS and the owners there.

                    So here I am, one week away from my departure to Ghana. It is truly hard to believe I am at this point already. I am getting more and more excited and anxious as the days go by.
