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?

Eating Cafe de Paris, on a Warm Afternoon in Accra

This afternoon, passed by Max Mart, and then decided to pass by this place for a bite. Considering the taciturn atmosphere, only punctuated with antiquated songs by Julio Iglesias on the tv (which turned out to be a DVD), I was left alone to commune with my thoughts and take a look at how this opportunity could be used to make it an "Accra Daily Photo" one.

First of all, "Cafe du Paris" is located on the ground floor of A&C Shopping Mall, and it's been a great while since I came here, as the food is not all that cheap.

I made the mistake of asking the waiter to recommend a sandwich dish to me, which he gladly did. I found out that he was recommending that, because that was the only dish he knew! out of the five proposed in the menu I am holding above.

Anyway, the food arrives, and this is what it looks like:

I was déçu**! It looked more like a glorified Club Sandwich than anything exotic:-( Either way, must say that on the positive side, the chips were this side of heaven--crisp to the hilt! I have to admit, though, that with the word "club" prefacing the "Club Cafebar", which went for a cool GHC4.70, or exactly $5.00, small wonder I got what I got!!

In any event, Paz, if you're reading, I hope it's whetted your appetite, and given great inspiration for your great site, which all of you can access here:

bon appetit!
