Walking Along Takoradi Beach In Ghana, Africa.

Takoradi is the capital of the state “Western Region” of Ghana. It is Ghana’s fourth largest city and an industrial and commercial center. Takoradi has a lot of beautiful beaches and it’s great to see the people there.

We had a hotel right next to one of these nice beaches. Mornings and late afternoons were the right time to spot people on their way to work, school or home. The reason I wanted to post photos of these men & women is simple: they carry all the goods an their head! Balancing is a must, muscles a plus ;)

So here are a couple of shots:

Colorful Ghana.
Instead of a handbag, African women carry their goods on their heads.
