Sometimes, it's the multinationals that drive people to drink, because I cannot for the life of me understand the subliminal messages being given of a huge monument exhorting people to drink right next to a motorway !
enjoy the weekend, and I'm sure you'll make it a safe one!

Just an evening picture of the sun setting, and coinciding with a tro-tro passing just underneath what looks like the setting sun!

Far be it for me to say point-blank that most Ghanaians eat this classic food this way. Far from it!
Stuck on what to eat for lunch, I decided to make my own by getting the chips from Shoprite, and the fried fish from the local place I buy my sweet potatoes.
Too late to join me, I'm afraid: I'm almost done!;-)

For all mankind's achievements, the self-inflicted sufferings and corruption and tremendous sorrow, I cannot help but think -- and not necessarily because I was brought up so -- that each time I look up at the huge sky above me, Someone bigger is looking back saying it shall be okay -- everywhere.
And not just because it's September 11th.

...just like any motorway would.
Ghana's National Road Safety Commission only last week launched a call centre, which seeks:
...to check careless driving on our roads.
At the launch of the Call Centre yesterday in Accra, Noble John Appiah, Executive Director of NRSC said, "The Call Centre is another tool from the NRSC to enable road users contribute to and partner the Commission, in the development and implementation of road safety programmes and activities".
The Call Centre will primarily focus on answering inbound calls across the country on road safety related enquiries, complaints and emergencies. These inbound calls, which are toll- free, will provide the general public with the opportunity to report moving and stationary violations as well as road safety related fraud and corruption.
It will also give people the opportunity to dial 10800 for Kasapa subscribers and 0800-10800 on G[hana] T[elecom] users to report and enquire about road safety issues.
I am wondering whether I should call next time when I see a scene like this, where the taxi I was in when I took this picture was travelling on the outside lane, when a big van like the one in the picture deemed it necessary to travel on the first;-)
It's always dicey chosing when to call; but not calling is what some might call an "evil", no?
