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?

Of Goats & Men, Re-dux: Typically Accra!

Not dissimilar to this scene here, I can never get used to the fact that Ghanaians seem to move so freely among goats (and vice versa!), when the goats should be elsewhere!

Soul Food: Ball in the Accra Sky

I couldn't help snapping this picture as I walked home yesterday evening. Forgive the fuziness of the picture, and simply enjoy what looks like a ball in the sky, but is really the sun setting.

I can only surmise that is the East of Accra!

Typical Scene of Accra Morning Traffic

I rarely pass the Tetteh Quarshie interchange to get to work--thankfully! When I do, it's because I need to get to town for a work-related activity, or run an errand.

Judging by this scene, I am glad I do not have to pass here!

Ghana Road Indiscipline...

...could be the only explanation for this broken-down truck, parked on the shoulder of the Tema motorway.

Despite Ghana's National Road Safety Commission, Ghanaian drivers--many of who are illiterate as far as road signs are concerned--continue to cause serious accidents!

I think it's time the NRSC did some serious outreach!

Clear the Path! A Ghana Ambulance...

...on its way!

Oh, I forgot. In Ghana, you're likely to see an ambulance in traffic even if there is no emergency. This is usually because they're used for other purposes--like conveying dead bodies to the morgue.

What's the necessity of speed in that?;-)

I Bet You Didn't Know about Ghana Socks...

They are more than socks which are worn in Ghana that are actually made in China. These are the real McCoy. Look closely:...

...they're made in GHANA! Hooray to Ghanaian enterprise!
