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?

Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Chocolate Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! or, if you're in Ghana today, Happy Chocolate Day!. The Ministry of Tourism a few weeks ago decided to designate Valentine's day as Chocolate Day, as a way of ensuring that we, Ghanaians, patronize our chocolate.

According to the latest statistics from the UK-based International Cocoa Organisation, Ghana is the n#2 top producer of cocoa in the world. Even despite the coup of 2002 that hit the West Africa country of Cote d'Ivoire, the country remains the top producer, producing between 2005-6 1,387 thousand tonnes of cocoa, against Ghana's 740 thousand.

This article in USA Today on how Young Ghanaians [have been] smitten with holiday pretty much sums the whole picture up.

Blogger doesn't seem to be playing nice but I want to vouch for the chocolate. I was in Ghana in May 2003 and brought back several bars of milk and orange chocolate to share with friends. Instead, I kept it all to myself! Wish I had some more...
