Our last day in Ghana

Our wonderful trip is drawing to an end... We held our closing reception at the beautiful African Regents Hotel, which gave us an opportunity to thank all of the individuals who contributed to make this trip unforgettable, but also to touch base with the Lehigh University alumni in Ghana, and a few former Global Village students. We were also pleased to host the headmaster of Mfantsipim school, and some of the guest speakers who delivered the lectures for our group. One of the Global Citizenship students, Amanda, spoke on behalf of the group to testify how rich and transformative this experience has been. Entertainment and dance added a touch of Ghanaian color and warmth to the evening.

Yesterday, we visited the Cocoa Research Center north of Accra and went to do our last shopping at a wood carving village.

We'll be leaving from the hotel at 5:00am tomorrow morning, and should be at JFK at around 5:00pm.

This has been a fantastic experience!

I'm sorry to say I just found out about this on your last day! I'm a Lehigh Grad (BS ME '05, BS EE '06) and I've been to Ghana 3 years in a row. Each time, we stay at a hospital in Apam (west of Cape Cost). I'd love to hear more about your trip and future plans. Could someone from the group e-mail me at rich.kurz (at) gmail (dot) com? I hope you had as wonderful a time as we always do!
