You will cook at home everyday.Milk products and vegetables are quite expensive in Accra. For one person you would need somewhere $500.In Accra we have an Indian restaurants around,then you budget must be much more. We use electrical and gas staves, it is depends of you accommodation where you are going to stay.You will have to purchase drinking water every day in bottles from supermarkets, one liter is 1/4 of 1$, but the pipe's water is safe if you boiled before and cool. Local people buying sachet water, which is safe for drinking and it is much chipper.
