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?

Ghana Cedi is Here! Of Serendipity and Virtue, Accra-Style!

The Ghana cedi may be here...but so is a blogger-cum-visitor-of-this-blog in town! She goes by the name of peculiar virtue, and she left a heart-warming post in the previous post.

It's truly serendipitous, or fortuitous, or lucky, for her to have chanced upon this blog a while back, and be visiting this country shortly after. Welcome PV!

In the meantime, let me present to you the NEW Ghana cedi. The pictures here are of the front and the back respectively (depending on what you consider the front, ofcourse!!). This new 20Ghana cedi (GHC20,00) is equivalent to old ç200,000 (two hundred thousand cedis). It is also equivalent almost to $20.00. In fact, if $1.00 is now GH0.92, or 92 Ghana pesewas (smallest denomination in coins), then we're looking at $21.73

Ghana has entered a new financial dawn--or so we are led to believe;-)

Remember this story? It might refresh your minds on the new currency;-)
