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?

If Ghanaian Trees at Ridge Could Talk...?

Ah, Ringway Estates: a leafy, verdant place located very close to the apogee of Ghanaian (and colonial pre-colonial) suburbia: Ridge. I have always wondered whether this part of Accra ever gets hot, because the trees just seem to grow and grow...and grow!

So huge they grow that I could not help but wonder--when I was in that part of town for a public service--whether if these trees could talk they would offer us a glimpse into the days pre-independence?

These must surely be a boon for historians seeking to understand variations in climate of the country. This particular tree stretches so high up--perhaps some 20-30 metres!!

I cannot but wonder what it has seen!
