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?

I understand it's West Africa's biggest interchange...

In a post reminiscent of this one here, this is a re-fresher of what the entering the Tetteh-Quarshie interchange looks like.

The denizen grapevine has it that this is the biggest interchange in West Africa; I have yet to find out any empirical, or official, evidence on this. What I do know is that it is a critical link to connecting both the East and West to other West African economies.

In Ghana, we call them economies from the Economic Community of West African States, or ECOWAS, established since 1975, with its Community Court of Justice; Parlament, etc.

Anglophone West Africans are still working on joining a regional currency, the ECO, to the already existing CFA, that serves the francophone ECOWAS countries(and is linked to the French treasury). You can visit the ECOWAS website here: ECOWAS

Last but important point to note about ECOWAS is that it was important in keeping the peace in Liberia, through its peace-keeping force of ECOMOG [Ecowas Monitoring Group] in the early 1990s (, as well as helping facilitate the bringing to book of the notorious Charles Taylor.
