Ghana boasts countless fascinating sights. Cape Coast and Elmina have well-preserved Dutch forts, one used as home bases for slave traders, storing human slaves for months before shipping them to the West Indies to work sugar plantations. Kumasi is home to the largest market in Africa. The enormous warren of tin-roofed shanties was fascinating enough to keep me returning for several days in a row. Long enough to make friends in the market. The Magazine is an area within the city of Kumasi where people tear apart cars and meld down scrap metal to fabricate and repair the next generation of Ghanian vehicles and tools.
