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?

A Day after Ghana's Celebration of Republic Day (1 July)...

...sees still more traffic, and plenty of rain!

For the past seven years, many of these bus "shoulders" have appeared throughout Accra and the country. It's only recently that I have been seeing that the "bus" signs are appearing alongside.

Honestly speaking, I can foresee a more sanitised transport sector with more distinctive shoulders for public transport, and a greater intervention by the regulators, including the National Road Safety Commission, who are getting tougher, as exemplified by this article here: where such-like regulators get tough on those vehicles that overload.

Leif--the younger ones celebrate it at the beach, but most people spend it at home. This year's was very low-key.

Wow, you certainly are not joking about how bad the traffic is! It actually kind of reminds me of Sydney. Makes me want a motorcycle.

Thanks for your blog, it is very interesting.

SprogBlog--many thanks for visiting! I suppose Sydney is a bit more sanitised;-))
