Faces of Ghana
 
My friend spent three month in Ghana and returned with hundreds of beautiful pictures.
I think they are too beautiful and interesting to not share them so I asked her if it's ok to post them. So here they are:

Fantastic.

Where are these from?

I spent about a month in Ghana 8 years ago but my experience was quite different as I was with 'middle class' people in Accra. They lived pretty much the same as I do.

A world totally unknown to the vast majority of us. Great set of pics. Most of the pics with the little kids are cute as heck. Thanks to you Alemaria and your friend for allowing you to post hese here.

I think she spent most of her time in Kumasi and then travelled around. The beach pics are from Elmina I think.
I have to ask her because I forgot the names. I know she visited some national parks and also saw elephants (those pics wouldn't have fit in this thread though). She only spent about 4 days in Accra, but was sick the whole time and had to stay in bed, that's why there aren't any Accra pics.
She travelled alone and never felt unsafe.

It sure is a beautiful country and I hope the econmy will imrpove so that in the future more tourists will visit the country.

Fantastic!
How does Ghana rank on the world poverty list?

Beautiful pictures! Charming people!

BnaBreaker Dec 10, 2006 1:37 AM

Gorgeous shots. I have many great friends from Ghana.

keninhalifax Dec 10, 2006 1:52 AM

Beautiful faces, indeed! Thank you for showing a new part of the world to me.

TheMeltyMan Dec 10, 2006 6:25 AM

I really enjoyed this thread. Ghana looks like a really optomistic place despite its problems.

Anyone else a bit disturbed by this pic?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...ancesco275.jpg

I know its a baby but it looks like some horrid tumour or conjoined twin.

Wow, great tour!

Tony Dec 10, 2006 3:07 PM

Fantastic Photo.

It's an absolute treat to get to see those parts of the world so rarely shown on SSP or the internet for that matter.

Brilliant!

Of all of the pictures of urban scenes, and the beautiful buildings, and cities posted on this forum I've seen. Not a one of them top what I've just viewed in these photos. I found this thread quite fascinating, and educational at the same time. Tell your friend thank you very much for allowing you to share these beautiful photos, as we don't often get treats such as this. :tup:

Awkab Dec 10, 2006 5:22 PM

Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos.

When I was younger, I spent two summers living with a Ghanaian host family a little bit outside of Accra. I know it's a bit of a cliche to say, but the people in Ghana are so friendly and welcoming. I would spend a lot time traveling around Accra by myself using the minibus taxis that everyone crams into (including at night), and I never felt threatened even though people could obviously see I was a foreigner. People used to come up to me all the time and try to give me directions to make sure I wasn't lost. While in many developing countries I would have been a target for theft...in Ghana people were always genuinely trying to help a visitor!

Thank you for a wonderful photo adventure to a place I've yet had the privilege of visiting. Africa is underserved on this forum.

dougtheengineer Dec 11, 2006 3:51 PM

Great photos, that beach is gorgeous.

They look like a fun people!

LSyd Dec 11, 2006 4:32 PM

thanks for posting these, your friend's talented.

Incredible pictures. People looks poor but certainly not depressed...

-GR2NY- Dec 11, 2006 7:14 PM

outstanding!!!

These people all look quite friendly, something you dont see in USA photo threads.

KevinFromTexas Dec 12, 2006 12:00 PM

Awesome. The kids are adorable. I love it that everyone is so happy and cheerful.

Tell your friend thanks. And thank you for posting them.
