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?

So Accra, So Green

I truly do believe that greenery in the capital is something to be cherished, and something that many city-dwellers, and commuters might take for granted--irrespective of the culture you're coming from. I've been blessed and priviledged to be surrounded by greenery almost my whole life, and I often do forget how beneficial it can be to the soul, if yo're into all that esoteric stuff.

But back to Accra.

The picture above is a scene that is almost a constant on the Spintex Road, and throughout the capital: plants being sold left, right, centre and almost everywhere. They are literally littered on that road, and especially popular on roads leading outside the capital to the nine different regions of the country.

A man walks on a dirt road leading to a tarred East Legon, where my office is, and where it's very very verdant...

...whilst here, also in East Legon, this greenery -- as exemplified by the tree -- is in front of someone's house.

Most amusing are the billy goats that feed on this greenery in the capital...for good measure! You can continue to fret or accept scenes like these...till tourists start pouring into the capital from February 2007 onwards for the celebration of 50 years of Ghana's independence:-))
