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?

Here's your Ghana Taxi!

Just in case you have any doubt, this is a picture of what a typical taxi in Ghana looks like: double-coloured (always either yellow and white, yellow and brown, with at least a yellow colour in there somewhere!).

It is also followed by yellow number plates, with black lettering/digits. Private cars, conversely, have WHITE backgrounds as their plates. The "GW" at the beginning is always a tell-tale sign of where in Ghana it was registered. Here, the "GW" means Accra. Given the speed with which cars are being registered in the country these days, you will now see "GS", which is also Accra.

It originally started with "GR" for Greater Accra Region; whilst those who registered it at Tema got "GT".
