City tour of Accra.
Accra, the capital of Ghana, is an interesting city that, although is quickly evolving, has kept its own identity, reflected in both modern and old areas where traditional activities continue to hold sway.
We will visit the area of the coffin makers, with their elaborately shaped coffins representing fruits, animals, fish, cars, airplanes…. and the only limit is the intended occupant’s imagination. Originally coming from Africa, these flamboyant coffin designs are part of collections all over the world and exhibited in museums.
We have scheduled a visit to the National Museum, one of the first works of independent Ghana.
The life of the native people unfolds facing the ocean: a village surrounded by a city! Here, economic activities follow different rules than those governing “the city” (business area), only hundreds of meters away.
