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?

Ghana 2, USA 1--Redux : David Meets Super-Sized Goliath


I’m just listening to commentary from my favourite Accra-based radio station (http://www.citifmonline.com) CITI97.3FM, which you can listen to online in crystal-clear quality. And as I sit at my desk, the cool wind blows, and I hear cars honking their horn in staccatos of one, two, three. We may be playing against the Brazilians.

The USA are out (the staccato continues), prompting a comment from my colleague that the car’s battery “is gonna die isn’t it”?

Someone shouts. Many hearts pound relentlessly.

As if in a dream, work resumes, but is it at its normal pace?

Ghana, the wrongly-speculated underdogs have transformed from football Lilliputians to the quintessential Black Stars of Africa who will be meeting Brazil – number one on the FIFA rankings – on…Tuesday.

Hold your breath, Africa. Hold your breath, World!

here are some more pictures:



Ghana and Italy top Group E, leaving the Czech Republic and the USA woefully behind.

A car stops by the entrance, and a lady springs out jumping, almost uleleling. Out comes a be-spectacled man joining in the dancing.

It would be a serious breach of security...were it not for the fact that the man is my former boss at work:-)

USA did good, Ghana did better, though the play was not as engaging as the Czech-Ghana game.

Hasta manana:-)
