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?

South Africa's "GAME" Store Opens in the Plush Accra Mall


Last Thursday, I chose not to resist the temptation of visiting the "GAME" store that has opened in the plush Accra Mall, occupying some 20,000m2.

I understand GAME is a South African retail store, and is reputedly the biggest. Swell. Now, it's in Ghana, to do business. After many year's experience of shopping at "grande surface" malls like http://www.hypercarrefour.be, this doesn't particularly impress me. I am more concerned about the consumer culture it will begin to create in Ghanaians.

But that's just me!

One article here maintains the Mall is on account of Ghana's growing economy and its growing middle class...

I will certainly be a visitor to GAME, but not a regular one, as it is the other side of East Legon, where I work.

More pictures to come on the location so that one can place it in the context of the famed Spintex Road I keep talking about on this blog;0)
