I've tried to refrain from posting very much about Accra's perceived everyday oddities. I'm a guest in Ghana, after all, and loudly proclaiming that the normal I bring with me is more normal than the normal that I find here feels a little prejudicial.
But, if I'm going to get my blog quotient up, I need fodder for quick posts. And, now that I have a phone with a (very poor) camera inside it, I can snap the stand-outs of daily life any time.
We'll put this photo in the "How the Heck Did This End Up on the Shelf of a Fancy Grocery Store in Ghana?" category.

a box of Subway-brand plastic gloves, polyethylene for that filmy freshness.
Apparently, next time I need a bunch of Subway-sandwich-shop logo-ed plastic gloves for my everyday life in Accra, I'll know where to go.
But with the absence of Western-branded food places here, for the actual sandwich, I'd have to fly one in. So much for eating fresh.
