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?

Liberation Circle, Accra

I took this picture, as the date suggests, last May. To the immediate right is the road that leads to the Accra International Conference Centre. Wondering why there is so much blue? Well, that's from the taxi from which I took this picture.

Another thing you might notice about this picture are the trees in the middle, which is the Liberation circle. It is an interesting area in the sense that that the routes that lead from the circle go to our Public Utilities Regulatory Commission, which ought to regulate our utilities, but doesn't always do so effectively;-); many banks, such as SG-SSB, which is a merger between Ghana's Social Security Bank, and the worldwide Societe Generale, which also operates in Belgium (in fact one of the biggest there).

It also leads to downtown Accra, including the Electricity Company of Ghana, which I featured earlier in these series of pictures.
