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?

Ode to the (Psychedelic) Ghanaian Tro-Tro

In my humble opinion, it is an article of decency for any tro-tro owner to make his vehicle as attractive as possible.

Like the ubiquitous taxi, there are tro-tros all over Accra. Many of us are quick to scoff, perhaps suck our teeth, at the insalubriousness of the drivers and the state of the cars they're driving, but there remain a few in the system that go the extra mile, as it were.

Tro-tros like these, which I boarded some two weeks ago. It wasn't only neat; it was also equipped with these psychedelic lights of blue and green fluorescent, which lent it a "disco-ey" feel.

Did I say "long live tro-tros!"?

Only when they're this cool!
