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?

Spintex Road Flowerpots, Anyone?

One of the greatest mysteries of living in Accra is the capacity for Ghanaians to display expensive products -- like these flower pots -- outside, and gather them all meticulously at night, covering it with something or other for the next day, without being too scared that at night, someone might come and whisk it away! And if that paragraph is this short of too long, sue me! 'Cos I don't understand!

Sometimes, you get vendors selling sofas--yes, leather sofas--in this same environment. Evidently, when the climate is less clement, as in when the rainy season sets in from July-October, selling in this risk-averse way might be problematic. Either way, the Ghanaian capacity to "arise and surprise" is kicked in when conditions change;-)

(btw: many thanks for all those who commented on the music on this blog!;-) )
