Ghana fashion!

We have a new site where you can read all articles from This is Ghana in a much more organised fashion. Read Ghana fashion! there.

Second-hand clothing proliferates on the streets of Ghana. Don't be surprised if you find the pineapple lady sporting a t-shirt advertising your local -- as in back "home" -- plumber's services, or the fish seller in your favourite sporting team's jersey from thirteen years ago, or the taxi driver in a "Choose Life" throwback which you may wish to trade, if you're brave enough to get yours off in the middle of a heaving market.

But the sandal seller who passed the egg lady where I was gobbling my egg sandwich by the open sewer one morning exceeded all previous t-shirt spottings.

"Well behaved women rarely make history" -- a motto to live by, for sure -- is my favourite priceless hand-me-down.
