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?

April 2006-April 2011:

5 years of bringing readers insights into life in Ghana! Thank you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all...It's Ghana's JUBILEE YEAR!!

May the winds of fortune that I command blow your way and beyond;-)) May all your blogger and non-blogger dreams, wishes and desires come to pass--wherever you may be;-)

I truly apologise for the absence, but the beginning of December saw some intense activities at the office, including spending some four nights in a hotel, going home; and another four nights in another hotel outside the capital for the organisation's annual review. More pictures to follow from this visit!

I am using these pictures because suffice-to-say, the hotel atmosphere inhibits any serious cogitation or consideration for blogging! There's too much DSTV on tv to bother about blogging!;-))

In my parent's car in town during Christmas eve, near the famed-37 area, because the biggest building in that area is the 37 military hospital. Destination?...

...MaxMart, the Lebanese retail store that boasts two big stores, including this one, in the capital, and where many non-Ghanaians and Ghanaians -- of the middle class kind, might I cheekily add -- shop. Everything can be obtained here, some slightly below and at par with the Ghanaian market, or slightly above. You get your Belgian chocolates here; your Kellogs; your major multinational brands, includinig Nescafe, etc...

See those red number plates on that merc? It belongs to a diplomat (in Ghana, red plates are diplomatic plates, which include "CD"), so that already tells you what kind of "calibre" or class comes to shop here;-)

Oh yeah, the President John A Kufuor, in his New Year speech declared the Jubilee Year for Ghana "open". Wanna find out more about Ghana's
