Student Photo Gallery: Ghana

Akwaaba! The ships time in Ghana allowed students to get a deeper sense of Africa as students explored the history, nature, food, music, and pace of this welcoming country. Below are a smattering of the images SAS students submitted from their time in Ghana, from the Nzulezu Water Village to the lush canopy of the Kakum National Park to the streets of Accra.
