In the heart of Agbogbloshie market

Aargh! The bandwidth! This post has taken five days to put together.

Power has been out in Kokrobitie for a couple of days. The official story is that they are working on the high-tension lines, so all power needs to be shut down. Rumours are that this will go on for seven weeks.

What you need for midnight blogging in the black-out. 
Laptop with internet stick, 12-V battery and power inverter, 
wind-up lantern, beer. The pizza arrived about ten minutes later.

Our photos today are from the heart of Agbogbloshie market, which as we have seen before is packed with more onions than the mind can comfortably conceive.

The place is loud. And the moment you arrive you are besieged by people determined to sell you onions.

What do you feel like? Dark red, high antioxidant onions? Sweeter white onions? Holland onions?

There really is a lot of food here. It just happens that a lot of it is onions.

It isn't all onions. Garlic in Ghana is really pungent. Not sure if it is the selenium.

I'll post more photos if bandwidth improves.
