Elizabeth Cothern sends this picture from Accra, Ghana.  She writes:

“The photo was taken of me in Madina Market, only a short Tro-Tro (the local bus here) ride away from the international students hostel at the University of Ghana.  When I first visited Madina Market I was definitely overwhelmed – it was loud, hectic, and seemed to be exploding with people.  If I took a wrong turn I ended up in the produce section with aisle after aisle of every imaginable type of meat out for display.  As intimidating as it was at first, the market has become one of my favorite places in Accra.  I’m often visiting it once a week to pick up some groceries or buy notebooks for class.  They truly sell everything. “
