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?

This is a Snapshot of Accra's Spintex Road at Night...

...and, sure, it looks dark. That is because for despite all the so-called wisdom of our government, none of the members of the administration have seen it fit to have STREETLIGHTS set up on this road that spans some 10kilometres, plus. As I am not seeking to re-invent the wheel, let me just point to a quote I made in my other blog, in April, here:

The Spintex Road in Accra is one of the fastest-growing, traffic-inducing roads just outside the Accra Metropolis. It leads to Teshie-Nungua, and onto Tema. From that road, you reach the famous (or should that be infamous?) Tetteh-Quarshie Interchange, where you either get confused by the structure or follow the automobile crowd.


You can watch the video -- just to see how it feels to drive there -- here:

Suffice to say, I am far from proud of this obscurity, but I am one of the breed of people who believe sincerely that a constant reminder, and explicit and irreverent reminder of these things...does get results. There is a "Spintex Brief" magazine, set up earlier this year, which is being used to advocate many issues of pertinence to the Spintex Road area, which also happens to be an area of increasing "middle class-ness".
