It was my first time encountering the wonderful and mysterious north of Ghana.Many are the stories told, heard and believed but hearing is not believing it.The intensity and nearness of the sun makes you feel like the Almighty is a breath away.
The ground so dry that I doubt a waterfall can make it yield something.Fire proof trees dotted the landscape like stars in the sky on a moonless night.
There is abundance of livestock and fowls in different varieties.I must confess what caught my eye was the guinea fowl.It’s very small eggs and beautiful feathers that will compliment decorations.
The north can boast of locally grown rice, potatoes, yams, onions, tomatoes, kola nut, pepper and many more.
A vegetation so green and fresh during the raining season and so dry and brown in the harmattan season.
I wasn’t only bewildered but I was also impressed when I met the people of the North.
Their males are easily recognized and distinguished from other parts of Ghana especially from the south.
If you meet a northern born man, they are tall like an Iroko tree.Firm strong and huge feet held the thick elongated calves terminating in a firm connection of the knee cap.The thighs meeting up with the ever strong pelvis.
Stomach sitting peacefully and comfortably on the waist.The ribs and broad chest was covered with built masculine flesh
The broad shoulders held the thick short neck and head in place
With beautiful marks drawn on their faces
The hair fine and strong like locally brewed pito.
In totality, this is a true representation of what the Oyibo woman will call a strong black man
It is widely said that the best comes from the west but not when it comes to beauty of women, the north has the best
Their hairs are naturally groomed, treated with alluring shea butter
It provides a shiny, non-breaking, dandruff free, thick and light hair with its own special enthralling scent.
Wow how I want to get lost in that powerful smell of their hair.
The forehead bone is well curved with the eye sockets adorned with clear white penetrating cornea with a center brown-black pupil.
The beautifully shaped nose rests gently above the upper lip.The lips is so inviting like fresh strawberry plucked in the dawn of day.
I undoubtedly believe it will taste like the sweet nectar of a grape fruit.
The cheeks are fresh, curved and sweet.
Trust me, when smeared with soft and oily well beaten shea butter, it is simply irresistible to not feel it.
Their necks are shaped in compartments like the shell of a centipede.
Giving rise to firm soft shoulders that hold the beautifully shaped breast like halves of a pomegranate fruit
Ending in a flat tummy which is held proudly on the waist.
At the back is very huge asset of a northern woman
Big buttocks that shakes on its own like Tuo Zaafi being pushed on a truck.
It jiggles and moves great effortlessly.
Trust me I don’t know what is in the water up here but you will see more of this if you step on this wonderful land God has made in the north.Hands are well fleshed and spotless ending with equally perfect fingers.The thighs down to the feet is flawless and beautiful.
Aside all these, they are hospitable, lovely, human and friendly among others and their brilliance.The north of Ghana is a wonderful place to be and the natives, a sight to behold.
There are many tourist sites to visit and get marveled.

LEARN TO DISAGREE WITHOUT HATING
Human opinions are varied as opposed to programmed systems and technologies. Depending on the variety of factors we individually experience in our surroundings, our psychological makeups and our points of view regarding issues are most likely to differ.
Of course, it is not abnormal in some instances to have a feeling of wish that if everyone else was to be like you, the world would have been an easier place to be. Your wish even rekindles when people seem to act and/or gather thoughts in manners you think you wouldn’t have. But come to think of this, how would our stay on earth be if everyone else was to think and act just like you? Would the essence of living be fulfilled at all? What then shall we be living for?
Having our diversities in mind, not coming to terms on issues in some instances shall certainly prevail in our life endeavors. Misunderstandings and unrests keep looming because we all have unique thoughts society has couched for us. “The best version of you is you yourself” as is usually said. So expect not that everyone else thinks or acts as you.
One trait of ours we need to reconsider in such moments we face contentions in view and opinion sharing would be the manner in which we react in instances we tend to not come to common terms with one another. As evidenced by the proverb, “Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument”, making our points well made with glaring evidence is enough to clearly spell our stance. It needs no hate whatsoever.
It is the case that a number of us have fixated our thoughts to accept that anyone who opposes us is not one who cares for us. But how true is that? We only have to keep reminding ourselves that we are all distinctively different and cannot possess same opinions at all times. Therefore, when one opposes you, see it as an opportunity to make yourself understood rather than taking it as an offense.
Just remember that we all don’t think and analyze things in the same way. Little brawls and misunderstandings should not make you enemies. You should be able to stand in disagreement with people without hating them at last. Do you have cherished ones you’ve broken ties with just because they sided not with some engagement or thoughts of yours? If yes, then it’s time to move past those shackles and create new paths. You may be right – you may also be wrong. This other person may be right – s/he may also be wrong.
But our loving and forgiving principles should be constantly illuminated by the saying ” We are all full of weakness and errors. Let’s mutually pardon each other our follies”. After all, “opinions are like noses, everybody has one and nobody’s is perfect”.
