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?

Lunch in Accra, anyone?

In what one can call a stark contrast to the working lunch I had a couple of months ago here, this is one of the more typically lunch foods I like to eat off-late.

Nothing beats nicely-fried sweet potatoe, with some fish.

Sweet potatoe, as the link above maintains is:

(Ipomoea batatas), food plant, native to tropical America, cultivated for its edible tuberous root, and particularly in Africa, for its leaves which are eaten as greens. Sweet potatoes have been called "yams" for centuries in the Americas, beginning when enslaved Africans applied their West African word "nyami" to the American sweet potato that resembled their African yam.

"Nyami" (or "nyana") became "yam" in English, "igname" in French and "ñame" in Spanish.Yams and sweet potatoes cannot always be used interchangeably.

Let me just finish off by saying a big "thank you" to all those who visit here regularly. I apologise for not reciprocating as often as I would like to. I am sure you can tell that the oft-infrequent postings in themselves point to areas that can be improved.

Promise to make a better effort from August. I'll be on fire then, for it will be exactly four years on Saturday since I came back home from Belgium from a working experience in Brussels to one right here in Accra.

Interestingly I just had me fried sweet potatoes with some stew.

Glad you're planning to become more consistent with your posts.
