       我们的第二个目的地是位于海岸角的艾米娜奴隶堡。第一天下午从卡库姆国家公园出来后就连夜开车直奔奴隶堡,黑人司机也和我们一起去了空中走廊,没有午休,所以一路上一直担心安全问题,不过还好最终顺利到达,毫发无损。
       奴隶堡由葡萄牙人建成于十七世纪中叶,是向欧美输送奴隶的中转站。它曾先后被葡萄牙人、荷兰人和英国人控制,直到1956年被加纳政府收回。  
       环游奴隶堡,可以看到粉刷的墙壁斑驳剥离,裂纹满布,那是风吹雨打的痕迹。  它就像一位饱经风霜的老人,就那么站在

那里,默默地倾诉着在那黑暗年代非洲人民所受的苦难。 走进囚禁奴隶的地牢,看到石板铺的地面上摆放着一束束表示悼念的鲜花,一些黑人还跪在地上为逝去的同胞祷告。地牢既潮湿又阴冷,窒息压抑, 令人无法呼吸,不愿过多停留,就快步来到天井,奴隶们放风的地方。奴隶主会站在高处在这里挑选年轻有姿色的女奴供他们享乐。顺便说一下,奴隶们按性别分别关押。 

        奴隶堡围墙旁布满了用于防御的大炮和炮弹,饱受风雨的侵蚀,早已锈迹斑斑,但是西方列强在这里犯下的罪行却永远不会生锈。

 Elmina Slave Castle

 

       Our second destination was Elmina Slave Castle which was located at Cape Coast. We left Kakum National Park in the afternoon and drove during the night to save time. Our local driver had little sleep during the first day for he also went to the walkway with us. I was so worried about the safety, but to my relief we arrived at the castle safe and sound.

 

         Built in the mid 1600s by the Portuguese, the castle was a relay for the slaves to be sent to Europe and America. The castle had been owned in succession by the Portuguese, Dutch and English until being taken over by the Ghanaian government in 1956.

 

         When you walk around the castle, you can see the cracks and peels on the white-washed walls, which showed that the building had undergone so much slashes and blows of wind and rain. It stood there quietly like an old man, telling in silence the sufferings of African people in that dark age. Walking into a dungeon where the slaves were kept, I saw bunches of flowers dedicated to the slaves on the stone floor, some black guys even kneed down to say prayers for the deceased. The dungeon was so damp and cold and depressive, I could not bear such breathless atmosphere and got out of it into a square parvis, where the slaves were occasional set out for fresh air. The slave holders would look down and choose beautiful young girls to satisfy their evil desires. By the way, the slaves were kept separately by sex.

 

        There were a lot of cannons and cannonballs round the walls of the castle for defense purpose. These were the witness that western colonists fought with each other for the ownership of the castle. Weathered by wind and rain, the cannons became rusty, but the crimes committed here would never rust.
