Our first glimpse of Elmina--it doesn't look so ominous from a distance.
A cell in which up to 300 women could be held for as long as 3 months waiting for a ship to transport them.
The gate of no return. Once through this doorway the slaves were loaded onto ships.
Our brief experience inside one of the detention cells--this is the cell where people survived because there was air and light.

Up top the wind, ocean view, and fresh air was wonderfully refreshing !
