Student Photo Gallery: Ghana

At about the size of the state of Minnesota, Ghana is the third smallest country on the Spring 2013 Voyage itinerary.  Yet for many students, this West African country may have been one of the most transformative.  Below is a collection of photos taken by the shipboard community during our five days in Ghana.
