Jamestown – Accra, Ghana

I had a wonderful opportunity to visit Ghana and this was my first time in Africa ! Such friendly people the Ghanaians 🙂 This panorama was taken atop the Lighthouse at Jamestown in Accra. As you can see, this part of town still retains the feel of the colonial era, while the more modern Accra is on the other side of Jamestown.

Left to Right – the Jamestown Lighthouse and the fishermen village near the Jamestown beach. Given that Accra was a major slave trading point, Jamestown had several prisons built for slaves along the line of the beach, as can be seen in the 3rd picture.

Nevertheless, the local food was amazing and the country is definitely football crazy ! 🙂
