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?

James Bond Will be in Accra Mall till This Week!

Last Friday, a teeming crowd in the Accra Mall could have meant one thing--that they were there to see the reality of duplex cinema come to Accra--and no less than the Accra Mall... they came in their numbers to witness not just snapshots of the movie, but to get the rather-prohibitive ticket cost of GHC10.00 (roughly $9.00)/person to enter the cinema... watch none other than Daniel Craig playing what is a sequel to Casino Royale -- the much-talked about Quantum of Solace!

I believe it coincided with worldwide release. Clearly, the Accra Mall is not just set to make history for the average Ghanaian(and Western) teenager on Friday nights, but create sufficient traffic to drive commuters slowly...insane!

Have yourselves a good one!

360 Degrees of Blogging Separation

The end of the year always gets like this, when you are trying to wrap things up at work, but have to reconcile it with the usual blogging. When you top it up with an imminent general election that seems to have eclipsed even Christmas festivities, you arrive at a point when you realise you are dealing with an incendiary brain tongue-twister that only YOU can sort out.

Let's just say I have the pictures for Accradailyphoto, and the entries for my other blogs--but I JUST haven't made time to write them out as I have been a little more than preoccupied with helping contribute to a cause close to my heart--including my professional work ofcourse.

I should get a picture up by Friday and maybe some small entries here and there.

I should bounce back with a vengeance next week. Indulge me and forgive me, too!

Thank you for your patronage!360

Soul Food: Evening sets in Accra

In a far departure from my usual postings, I am posting a series of scenic pictures of Accra that I say "feed the soul". I appreciate quite a number of people remain agnostic or atheist in the face of tremendous miracles that surround us. With the upcoming election in just under the three weeks, the miracle of a violence-free election resides in appreciating that at the end of the febrile activity associated with campaigning, there will needs be a new day...

For that, I cannot but be thankful and celebrate this by stepping back from the chaos to see the bigger picture of being an ant in this 6-billion plus universe against the garagantuan elements that surround us...

When Scarce Water is No one's Cup of Tea

Last time I looked, the only thing in common water had with tea was the fact that they were both liquids! So, what really takes the biscuit in this entry is the fact that for the past couple of days, even drinking tea and trying to wash the cup has rarely been any one's cup of tea, on account of needing to fetch water into a bowl, and then clean the cup separately before washing it.

As Ghanaians gear themselves up to watch the second of the Presidential debates organised by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) in the Northern region of the country, potential and floating voters will be (re-)considering which of the major four parties will ensure that water will be running regularly, I'm sure!

Ouch, hope with all this talk of food and liquids, you're not hungry?

How about some tea?;-)

Soul Food: A New Dawn for the World?

Out of the blue, on the afternoon of Tuesday 4 November, around 3.15pm, the Accra skies opened and rain poured down. Curiously, the rain was set against a backdrop of a still-glowing sun. There was no rainbow I could see. But to me... was emblematic and symptomatic of what I could only describe as a new dawn for the world. I was more than convinced when I captured this beautiful risinig sun, around 6.15am, on the morning of Wednesday 5 November, some few hours after hearing that we can officially call Obama the 44th President of the United States!
