Melania Trump spent her second day in Ghana touring a former slave outpost and learning about some of the country's tragic past, as part of her first solo trip overseas as first lady.

Trump laid a wreath near the "Door of No Return", which leads to the ocean.

Trump, wearing an olive-green shirt and brown trousers, with her ubiquitous five-inch high heels, asked the girl her name and said she was "beautiful", bending down to give her a hug.

A marble plaque unveiled by Obama and his wife during their visit hung near the entrance to one of the dungeons.

It's also her first visit to Africa.

He said his family's tour of the Cape Coast castle was an emotional, and an important landmark that will help his daughters understand their obligation to fight oppression and cruelty. She also signed a guestbook, telling reporters she inscribed an appreciation for the "warm welcome" she has received.

She was met by her Ghanaian counterpart Rebecca Akufo-Addo and a group of local schoolchildren in yellow and brown uniforms waving the United States stars and stripes and the Ghanaian flag.

She was also seen wearing a pair of her favorite Manolo Blahnik heels first thing in the morning - however she changed out of the sky high pumps and into the low-cost flats by the time she reached the 17th Century castle, no doubt in order to ensure she could enjoy the walking tour without worrying about her feet.

Before proceeding to the slave castle, she visited the palace of the head chief of the area and obtained royal approval to visit the fortress after presenting drinks to the chiefs.

As the ceremony proceeded, the chief offered Trump a large tray full of kente cloths, handmade sandals and a handmade necklace and bracelet, which she stood to accept.

Later on Twitter, the first lady described the day. A mother placed her six-month-old in one, and upon hearing the weight, Mrs. Trump declared, "Healthy boy". Her campaign, called "Be Best", focuses on issues that children face today, including the effects of social media and opioid abuse. The chief made a point to tell the first lady's entourage how strongly he felt that the students should attend, and that he personally went to the school to invite the students.

The 48-year-old, who is now on the second official day of her Africa tour, stepped out wearing a Veronica Beard design that she first modeled back in September 2017 during a trip to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland with her husband. She will return to Washington at the end of the week.

On Tuesday, Trump visited the Greater Accra Regional Hospital in Ghana and spent some time with a baby clinic. US lawmakers have come, too.

The US first lady stepped off an overnight flight from Andrews Airforce Base near Washington and onto a red carpet at Accra's Kotoka International Airport. The pair had previously met earlier this year during the U.N. General Assembly in NY.
