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.
