An emotional stop at Assin Manso, a prominent town along the enslaved African trade route where so many of our ancestors from the northern parts of Ghana, Burkina Faso and Niger were marched bare foot in shackles heading towards the coast The town surrounds the Ndonkor Nsuo (Slave River). This river is where enslaved Africans were checked for fitness and bathed before being transported to Cape Coast for shipment to the Americas. Located below the governor`s place of worship and castle church we find the dungeons where up to 600 African men, women and children were kept at any one time in atrocious conditions until being taken through the infamous “Door of no return” to waiting ships.

This evening after we have settled into our hotel, we can choose to visit one of the restaurants owned by those that have relocated here, hearing their experiences and how it feels living in Africa.
