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?

Asanka Locals Chop Bar: A Great Place to Eat

Located in the heart of the capital (OSU: Re), where one can find a number of hang-outs for both ex pats and Ghanaians alike, this is not a place where one does, receives, or views any "chopping".

In the local parlance, "chop" means "eat", so a "chop bar" is a place where you go to eat--and not necessarily a bar, even;-)

If ever you find yourself in Ghana, and specifically OSU, ask for it. The prices are reasonable, and you can find a wide variety of food there.

Good weekend!

That does look like a great place to stop by for a bite to eat.

Are all buildings in your city this colorful? I hope you'll show more photos of Accra's streets and buildings. I'd love to see them.

Visiting Ghana and don't know of a good place to eat at. Take a cheap flight to Accra and do eat at the Asanka Locals Chop Bar which is known for its delicacies.
