The Africa Rainbow Resort

Located a walking distance (before) from the widely known Busua Beach Resort is this one building resort with an intriguing name - African Rainbow Resort. Whenever the bigger Busua Beach Resort is overbooked you can always count on Africa Rainbow with its large Africa designed airy rooms.

A busy Dodi Island

The famous and yet very empty Dodi Island. Hope the island will be made livelier with some structures for the tourist before long.

When Highlands and Water meet the effect is astounding!

There are times when a breathtaking view just lets you come out with a soft moan - Aha! This is one of them taken on the Volta Lake in 2010. Nature is indeed beautiful.

This beautiful but uninhabited small island which I have decided to call Volta Island, can be found right in the middle of Ghana's Volta Lake. My camera lenses could not resist this spectacular view.

A canoe ride on the clear blue Volta is certainly not out of place, as these enthusiastic boat riders depict.

The Grains Maid

The Grains Maid

Ghana's only cruise boat on the Volta Lake, the Dodi Princess, was in its early life a cargo vessel known as the Grains Maid, probably because it ferried maize and other grains from communities along the periphery of the vast expanse of the lake, before it was converted into a cruise boat.

Road Crash January 25

Some passersby looking on just after some injured commuters had been taken to the hospital
BY EDMUND SMITH-ASANTE

In spite of the worry that has been expressed by many Ghanaians about the INCREASING spate of road crashes in the country, especially since the beginning of this year (2011), the carnage on our roads seems very far from over.
Early Tuesday morning at 7am, this 207 Benz bus with passengers heading for their business of the day overturned at Paloma Hotel in Accra, injuring all passengers on board. It is still not clear what caused the accident but when I got to the scene just when the crash had occurred, passersby and the police were helping ferry the injured to hospital, while some of the injured were visibly shaken by the crash.
