Interesting thing, though, is that this taxi service has most of its employees coming directly from...Gold Cab!
The downs: No uniform; some 3GHC more expensive than Gold Cab; not all the drivers speak good English; they don't charge per half-hour, meaning ten minutes after an hour, you pay for TWO hours!; very little publicity yet
The upsides: you can ride discreetly in a car with private number plates (white), like GOLD CAB. Only thing is a passing glance might make others feel you're in a limousine BMW 5-series!!; the 15GHC, or roughly US$10.5 for a drop, and an hour, they charge is almost akin to regular yellow-plated taxis; the car is spacious and more discreet than GOLD CAB's UK Cab, which is too conspicuous; you can pay at the end of the month when you patronise their services
So far, so very Chinese for a car! The Chinese are not coming; they're already here!
These guys at TOP CAB have a fleet of some 16 cars--all black-like "BRILLIANCE" cars.

Life needed to be lived outside the computer, so I lived it;-) The festive season called--as always--for intimate times spent together, so I did that, too!
It's not just kind of great to be back--it's truly to be back.
I will not make any promises for 2011--save to say that it promises--in theory--to be a great one for all! As for this blog, I will do the very best to bring you more unique insights into the capital of Accra.
Over the next couple of days, I will bring you sights from the festive season...as a way of warming one up for the year--especially February when I pretend to bring you sharper and more distinctive entries;-)
On the specific case of the erstwhile A&C Shopping Mall, the name-change has not come as a surprise. Bye-bye A&C Mall, welcome A&C, erm, Square!
