Each year, I look forward to the holidays and spending time in Accra, my second home. My experiences this Christmas were quite special. The highlights: attending inaugural events, the beach, and playing tourist.
I kept seeing tourist pics at this Osu Hotel and I was determined to get one as well. The lettering is so dope, but it’s right in front of a car park. There’s bound to be a car or motobike blocking some of the sign. In hindsight, the best way to get the pic would be for an extreme angle from the last “A”. Now-a-days, due to all the travel social pages, you get so much travel inspo it’s important to get ideas of places to visit and pictures to snap, but come with a little bit of strategy and an open mind, because it more than likely won’t turn out exactly the same.
There were so many fisherman hard at work. It was cool to see their methods- like a beach-length assembly line to pull in the net or removing their clothes before boarding a large fishing boat (there must be a strategy for this).
One thing I love about the beach, is the fresh seafood. The lobster and prawns are divine. The lobsters are a different variation than the ones in the US. They have more spikes on the shell.
Another signature, is the palm frond roofs , you can find these on at the beach and on summer huts (like gazebos).
