A kid plays with an old car tyre in front of a charcoal stall. The high cost of Liquified Petroleum Gas means that many households still depend on charcoal to cook their meals. Ghana is gradually becoming a desert. The trees that aren’t chopped down for charcoal get chopped down for the “beautification of the city” or exported timber or used in the construction industry. Recent attempts to plant more trees in the driest parts of the country ended up being a scam that will forever taint the administration of President John Mahama of Ghana. #SADA #environment #corruption #ghana #africa #osu #accra Photo by Nana Kofi Acquah @africashowboy (Copyright: 2014). #nanakofiacquah #africashowboy

Last night my car broke down and a gentleman asked me to park it in his yard, where it will be safe. I couldn’t see much. I went there this morning to thank him and get the car and this was the scene that met me. “Lakeside Beach” is definitely one of Accra’s hidden gems. The woman is crossing the lagoon on the bridge to go sell her food on the beach. Photo by Nana Kofi Acquah @africashowboy (Copyright: 2014). #Accra #Ghana #Africa

Kantamanto Market brims with activity on a Saturday morning. This is a second-hand goods “broni wawu” market. It is a good place to find quality items at affordable prices. A lot of brand new items in shops are cheap Chinese imitations but since most of the second-hand goods come from Europe and America, the quality is perceived to be better. And for the prices they sell, you can’t get a better deal anywhere else. “Broni Wawu” means “Dead white people’s stuff”.
