A VISIT TO THE CITY OF THE SUN, TAMALE
If you ever go to school in Tamale, then you are inviting stress for yourself, my brother once said to me
because he had a hard time adjusting to an environment, quite different from what he was used to in
I, on the other hand, enjoyed every bit of it, an irony right? The region has in abundance what those in
the diaspora don't get often, the sun, and as such they do not joke with it when it is summertime, a
blessing to us right? Here are some of the interesting places to visit and things to try at Tamale, talking
Tamale sports stadium
This place has been built to hold a capacity of over 20,000 people and hosted some playoffs during the
2008 African Cup of Nations, a historical moment in Ghanaian football. It is open, serene, neat, and just

The King's Palace
Gone are the days when Royalty was just from a distance. Now with proper paying of homage, you can
visit the palace, meet with some royals, and learn a thing or two about them as a keep safe for future

this mosque is that it is dated way back to 1421 but is still standing, making it one of the historical places
