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?

Front view of Ghana's human rights body, in Accra

I was up "High Street" in Accra this morning (this is where the big banks of Standard Chartered; our nation's major park, named after the first President--Kwame Nkrumah--is located; as well as main headquarters of Ghana's still state-owned Ghana Commercial Bank, established 1957; and a slew of other institutions) on a work-related issue, with one of my colleagues. We were meeting officials from the so-called CHRAJ, or Commission on Human Rights and Adminstrative Justice, which has been monitoring and intervening in favour of a rights-based society since 1993. A good number of the officials there are legal practitioners. Feel free to check out their website.

Shame about their location: at the old Parliament House. You can imagine that they haven't upgraded the building, so it looks a bit incongruous seeing state-of-the-art IT equipment, coupled with men and women smartly-dressed, speaking in legalese and otherwise, when...the kitchen is, for example,...far from salubrious!!
