We are volunteers in Ghana and have been using your guide book. We thought that you might like to know that we were mugged (beaten up and a bag ripped from our hands) on the rocks behind the Cape Coast Castle, around 10am on a Saturday. The guy was in his mid 20s and had been sitting on the highest rock overlooking the ocean for a couple hours. We wandered over to look at the ocean and he cornered us, attacked us, and stole the bag (even though we were fighting back and screaming). We looked at the spot 4 hours later while inside the castle, and he was still sitting on the same rock, as though he were waiting for someone else to walk back there. We did get the bag back, but it was a terrifying experience, and we could have been seriously hurt.
We are experienced travelers, vigilant, and aware of our surroundings, so this took us completely by surprise. It might be best to mention this in the next edition of your guide so other travelers don’t fall into the same trap.
