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?

Busy busy, on the Spintex Road (I)

I like this picture because I think it represents the increasingly busy nature of parts of the Spintex Road.

Take the Chinese Restaurant--"Sweet Roses"--that I have referred to before here: http://accradailyphoto.blogspot.com/2009/03/when-commercial-enterprises-in-ghana.html. It is located just a stone's throw away from that hotel in the picture. I took this picture from the front of a pharmacy.

The man walking in my direction was going to the pharmacy.

Now these apparently-mundane activities to me highlight one thing--how "convenience" is becoming a catch-word for Ghanaians, and how the famed Spintex Road has created what I would call "clusters of convenience" for those who ply the road. That there is a bank--just metres away from all this business--can only testify to how entrenched the clusters of convenience are becoming more apparent on this road.
