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?

Ghanaians Like Their Milo Drink...

...but given attention-grabbing headlines around health off-late (I never said "swine flu"!), it might be a good idea for Ghanaians to remember that they are among the top 5 producers of cocoa. See below:

1. Côte d’Ivoire … 1.3 million tonnes (37.4% of world’s total of 3.5 million tonnes)
2. Ghana … 720 thousand tonnes (20.7%)
3. Indonesia … 440 thousand tonnes (12.7%)
4. Cameroon … 175 thousand tonnes (5.0%)
5. Nigeria … 160 thousand tonnes (4.6%)
6. Brazil … 155 thousand tonnes (4.5%)
7. Ecuador … 118 thousand tonnes (3.4%)
8. Dominican Republic … 47 thousand tonnes (1.4%)
9. Malaysia … 30 thousand tonnes (0.9%)

With that knowledge in mind, as they go home for the weekend, "a nice cuppa" as the Brits like to say, would be okay as long as it's a "nice cuppa" cocoa.

Incidentally, the picture is one of quintessentially-Ghanaian cocoa. Best drunk without sugar.

Have a good weekend!
