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?

"Sunday World" : Ghana's Sunday Paper

In fact, this is the edition of last two week's Sunday World--a not so original title for a Sunday paper, but, hey, what can you do?;-)

It's been running for a few months now, and judging by last week's edition, the pages are growing by the week! This past week's edition was a good 31 pages.

One big snag is that for a lot of Ghanaians -- irrespective of whether they go to church or not -- getting the paper on the day that it would be great to read is not always possible, on account of not so-well-planned areas that make delivering Sunday papers problematic. That is to say, it is only in well-established estates that delivery is less difficult, because the planning is far better.

Streetnames do exist, ofcourse, but our rather tumultuos past put paid to a more concerted and wiser way of organising how to get to particular places without homorously saying : pass the blind beggar on your left, and turn left at the green mansion. Make sure you pass the barking dogs, and turn right at the shoe-seller who squats behind the filling station;-)

oh, Ghana!
