2 July 2011 – Adome Bridge

 

The first time I saw Adome Bridge I was on a Peace Corps bus traveling to Ho from Accra. We turned a corner and the bridge came into view. I was stunned by the silver suspension bridge against the dark green and azure blue background of the sky and forest. After my boat ride on the Volta I tried to capture the bridge in all it’s glory.

I googled the Adome bridge and discovered it was first used in 1957. We share the same birth year!

2 July 2011 – Crossroads

 

 

Atimpoku is a major crossroads between Accra and Ho, the capitol of the Volta Region. These signs are typical of  signs you find all over Ghana. They are usually hand painted. I don’t think three are any size or height regulations except maybe in Accra.

It’s everywhere you go!
