International Stingless Bee Centre and Hans Cottage

Standard

So today, August 30, we went on a little adventure to two attractions in Cape Coast. The first one was the International Stingless Bee Centre. This is a center is a habitat for four species of stingless bees. These bees are naturally born without stingers and hence, the name. Singless bees. Here are a few pictures of the village we walked through to get there and the center itself.

FOOD

So the food here is freakin delicious. I mean, if you don’t like rice or beans, you’re kind of in trouble. But I seriously enjoy it SO much. This dish, called fufu, is pounded cassava plant with plantains and it makes this sticky dough. The dough is then put into one of the different kind of soups, normally either okro stew, groundnut soup, or light soup. I had it with light soup. This was the first time I ever tried it and let me tell you, light soup is heavy on the spice…I thought I was going to seriously breath fire. It was still enjoyable and I will definitely be getting it again. Oh, and that is not a bug in the picture on the fufu, it’s just part of the soup.
