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?
