Accra, Ghana

I am on work travel in Accra, Ghana working with the government on national water and health policy issues. Ghana is a country of about 21 million people in the western part of Africa, with a long and beautiful Atlantic Ocean coastline. Accra is its largest city and capital. Ghanaians are friendly and laid-back; upon greeting you they will shake your hand with a snap and a smile, and occasionally a fist to the chest – “Respect”. Its my first time in this country and I’ve already been given a local name: Kweku Anigye, which translates to Wednesday Happiness.
