Ghana: Heaven for Namers

Posted by Alexandra Watkins on January 8, 2008

Before I went to Ghana, I had read that I could expect to see the country’s passion for Jesus reflected in the names of their businesses, but I didn’t expect 75% of shop names to have some kind of religious reference. Some of the more unusual names included included Blood of Christ Restaurant, Holy Canteen, and Jesus Loves Fashion. Unfortunately, while Ghanaians love the Lord, they hate cameras, so I didn’t get photos of most of the signs I saw as we whizzed by. Here are some snaps of some of my faves… there’s more in the official album.
