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?

Stakeout!...in East Legon


So there I was working some fifty minutes ago when I hear a sound in the distance. Minutes later, and the sound comes closer--it's of a man speaking through a megaphone "SHARP YOUR KNIFE!...SHARP YOUR KNIFE!". He's a picture of the average "working class" Ghanaian who is doing his utmost to do something for himself. (Far better tha resorting to armed robbery, if you ask me!)

He was walking with his sidekick--megaphone slung over his shoulder, and clad in a sun and dust-beaten t-shirt and trousers in an ironically determined manner.

I could have sworn I heard him earlier--just as I was about to leave the house, which is some twenty minutes drive, with little traffic, from the office. That was around 8.15am.

To think that around 11.05am, he had walked the equivalent of twenty minutes drive by car, some 8 km from the Estates to the busy Spintex Road through the East Legon tunnel to my workplace was not just amazing, but a feat of epic proportions, given the weather. And he must have had some customers along the way, too.

Regrettably, I took this picture to capture the "before he arrived" and "this is him" from the office--but no go!

Maybe next time!
