Hey CAG'ers - I just returned from Africa after an amazing 2.5 weeks, and have some CAG'ers to partially thank for making this trip possible. I had a lowball sale right before I left to help raise some extra funds for my trip. Not surprisingly, the bidders came through awesomely and I'm really appreciative for the support.

I went with an organization called Every Child Ministries which works with abused/neglected women and children in Ghana. I spent time training teachers and ministers on how to use puppets in classroom and churches. I also was able to do some great sight seeing in this beautiful country.

So here are a few pics from the trip:

Again, thanks to all the guys who bought stuff in my lowball and even gave extra for it as well.

Great pics I enjoy seeing other parts of the world.

I will have to check the trade forum more often.

Was that slave castle the Cape Coast Castle, per chance? I just finished reading a biography on Black Bart (Pirate Bartholomew Roberts) and they spoke briefly about it. I'd love to go there and shoot some footage of it.

I'm disappointed I missed the sale. You might miss the games in your collection, if at all, but seems like a small price to pay to have plenty of stories to tell in the future. Great thread.

Actually, yea, it was Cape Coast Castle - fascinating place, if also rather depressing.

Good perspective - losing a few games/systems was a small price to pay for all the incredible experiences that I had and stories I'll be able to share for a lifetime.

Personally, as much as I enjoy my game collection, it's not something I'd ever talk about or bring up at dinner parties. Just sayin. ;)
