3/14 - I lived in a traditional northern style compound—individual rooms surrounding the open center. The center is where everything takes place…cooking on charcoal pots, hand washing, drying, and it is almost always full of goats and children. There were about 27 people living in the compound, which is larger than most. Most people in the community are from the Dagomba tribe and are predominately Muslim. Another obvious distinction between the south and the north is religion. The south is predominately Christian, and the north is Muslim. However, Muslims and Christians are scattered all over Ghana and live together peacefully.
