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?

All Hail the Ghanaian Kiosk: the home of Ghanaian enterprise!

To the casual observor, the Ghanaian kiosk is the home of the Ghanaian informal worker (traders and hawkers) who is little-educated and wants to make an honest living out of the skills he or she possesses.

To the discerning observor, the kiosk is all these, as well as a conduit for the enterprising--not to mention resourceful--Ghanaian to make some extra money as he/she shuffles between the formal and informal sector.

A case in question is a very personable young lady whom I saw again this afternoon. Thing is, I have met her a couple of times--at a pharmacy in East Legon, dispensing medication. Alongside that, she schools at one of the private tertiary institutions; and...when she's free slips back into the formal sector by looking after her shop.

When I saw her this afternoon, I was more than mightily impressed! I know the Ghanaian lady's enterprising spirit is not to be sneezed at, but this, surely, takes the biscuit: two jobs alongside schooling?


Make your weekend a splendid one!
