Day 5/90 (Feb 5th): Yesterday, we were honored to meet the only female chief in this region of Northern Ghana, near Tamale. We had to learn customs of respect and how to introduce ourselves when we went before her throne. When she saw the children she welcomed us gladly. This activity was part of our first week orientation to Western Africa, along with our teammates the Hilberts. Today we went to the markets. Topics so far have included politics, economics, and major dos & don’ts. We have lectures & discussion in the mornings and activities in the afternoons.
