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?

Ordering Food in Accra was Never this much Fun!

Come, Let's go to a Local Market!

Ok, this is not quite the market, but walk literally 5 metres, and you find yourself in one of the most bustling markets in the country. I cannot give you any figures on the number of people who buy here--except to say that it is considerable, and it is comparatively neater, anad less insalubrious than other markets littered around the districts in the colourful capital. Another interesting aspect about this marketplace is that it is located some ten minutes drive from the premier University of Ghana in Legon, which makes it a useful place for students--both foreign and otherwise--to shop and experience local Ghanaian bargaining, food and whatnot.

DOn't mind the picture of the police station too much. It is comforting to know that just opposite the police station is the market--a great deterrent (I'm talking about the police station) for would-be-thieves. Thankfully, Ghanaians are more known for their friendliness and hospitality and so the likelihood of a foreigner being picked and needing to report to the police station is incredibly rare.

Have a good weekend!!
