What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

Akosombo: A View of the Eastern Region

Ghana consists of ten regions.

This picture is of the front of Volta Hotel,located in the Eastern Region, some 50 minutes outside the capital city of Accra. It has won many awards, and is renowned for being the place where the President (John Agyekum Kufuor) has his retreats with cabinet.

Just a view from the hotel is this resplendent view of Akosombo dam, initiated by the first President of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah, to provide electricity to the whole of Ghana. I cannot resist posting up a picture of the dam, and of Akosombo: too breathtaking;-)

Volta Hotel is on a hill overlooking the Akosombo dam. This is why the picture looks a bit funny; it's because I took it from the bottom of the hill. The building is a view of the hotel itself. Try to look out for the video, which is a bonus:-) enjoy!
