#592 Sisters - Charlottesville and Winneba

Charlottesville, Virginia and Winneba, Ghana are sister cities.
So when our Fall 2013 voyage of Semester at Sea docks in Ghana, we welcome a Winneba contingent to visit the MV Explorer, then we all travel to Winneba for an overnight stay.

In Winneba, we meet with local leaders to help lay the groundwork for future visits by Semester At Sea students through the UVA School of Architecture Resilient Communities project.  We visit local schools, see the site where a new public library is planned as part of the sister cities project, and walk the beach lined with colorful fishing boats. 
Yours in getting to know our new sister,
