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”.
