Ghana: markets

Ghana Journal, NGO worker describes the markets scene in Accra.…….”The market is a swirling mess of people – hawkers shaking t-shirts and pants, calling out for attention or if they’re within reach grabbing my hand or my arm. There’s women carrying bakeries on their heads, young men hefting boxes full of more things to sell and dumping them on sidewalks.”
