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?

Belated World Water Day!

In commemoration of World Water Day, here are two pictures reminding us of that blue gold none of us could do without.

The pipes are a reminder of some of the travails many, many Ghanaians go through to have a good supply of water into their homes, but how the privatised management that is Aqua Vitens Rand Limited--a South African/Dutch management company--manages manages to not fix the water problem since they took over Ghana Water Company LImited in 2005.

I'm concerned on this day about the role of private management companies that purport to resolve our water problems--how effective are they in the long run? Is it not better to invest money into state-run systems to develop capacity?
