Evening in Accra

All alone in Accra tonight, having left the gang behind in Mampong. The highlight of the flight from from the north was seeing Lake Bosumtwi -- a water-filled meteorite impact crater -- from the air.

Made it to the happening Osu district without much hassle and took myself out for what turned out to be kind of a nostalgic dinner. Needing to spend the last of my cedis before I fly out, I picked an expensive Chinese restaurant that came recommended where I had a delicious fish dish (the fish all along the coast in Ghana has been first-rate). Dining alone, I found myself reading over the meal in a Chinese restaurant full of Africans; weirdly reminiscent of many of my meals during my time in East Africa. And the waiter even brought a candle to the table for reading light!

Afterwards wandered around for a while, taking in the frenetic sights and sounds (and music) of Saturday night in a big West African city. But an early morning to catch my flight looms over me, so it'll be back to the hotel soon.
