Flanked by golden beaches and colonial forts, Accra, Ghana's friendly
capital on the Gulf of Guinea, pays homage to its trading history
with a handful of not-to-be missed markets. Makola Market boasts
glass beads, batiks, and a bevy of shrewd merchants--haggle-heaven or
haggle-hell, depending on your bargaining powers. Kaneshie Market is
the place to go for fufu, palm-nut soup, and other victuals, while
Osu Night Market proprietors deck their stalls with candles and
lanterns. The Arts Centre offers bolts of colorful Kente cloth,
sculptures, drums, and other crafts along with a front-row seat to
non-stop street entertainment.If an award were given for the country
with the friendliest people in West Africa, Ghana would be a strong
contender...especially if budget travelers were doing the voting.
Spend a few hours in the breezy capital at Accra, and you'll swear
the wind and waves off the Gulf of Guinea have infused the land and
people alike with equatorial warmth. Sure, even Ghanaians might admit
that Accra's not the most beautiful city in West Africa, but demit
it's their city - not one catering to safari-hated tourists or
Western expatriates - and Ghanaian pride is evident across the board.
Entry that's borne the brutality of colonization - from the stripping
of its mineral wealth to the enslaving of its people - Ghana retains
a remarkable sense of self. Its craftspeople have a long, rich
cultural history to draw from, and their work is thick with that
tradition - be it the colorful Kente cloth of the Ashanti or any of
the stools, icons, beads or baskets you'll find in the major markets.
Even the leftover forts and castles, recalling five centuries of
European influence, today seem less like Ghana's ghosts than players
in her narrative.
