Everyday Scenes in Ghana

I’ve been meaning to make an entry about interesting places and events in Ghana. However, I realised that instead of a long blog entry, pictures might tell the story better. So here are 11 randomly selected photographs that hopefully closely depict everyday scenes in Ghana. Please let me hear your feedback concerning what you think about the photos, what pictures you would like to see, and even if this whole idea of letting photos tell the story sometimes is cool. Enjoy!
