As we all know, it’s a break for the teachers in the Ghana Education Service and as a teacher, this is the best time for me to enjoy the days without work.

No chalk, no marking of lesson notes, not receiving or admitting pupils , no traveling far distance to the education office and many hussling time, LOL

Part of my itinerary for this vacation was to visit most of the places that I deem necessary to enrich my experience on earth and to learn a thing or two.

I landed at the very important historic edifice, Cape Coast Castle.

Hearing the tour guide talk about how our ancestors were treated and sent out of the country without their consent nearly got me tearing up.

I know you would want to hear more or see more, just holla me and let’s visit the Castle together…
