  • Spend a night at the cemetery

    Cemetery in Big Ada

    According to the locals in Ada, if a person travels to a place where he has no relatives or friends to stay with, the safest place to spend the night is the cemetery. This might seem odd, but presumably it is quite common for people to sleep on top of the graves.
    Cemeteries are generally ordered by confessions, so there is an area for Methodists, one for Presbyterians and so on. All non-believers are buried in the Fetish area of the cemetery.
    So even if you don't want to spend the night it's still interesting to have a look at one of the big cemeteries, e.g. the one in Big Ada.

  • Local Game Centers

    by SanBa Updated Feb 1, 2011

    Ludo, Oware or cards are just a few examples of the games that are played at the local game centers.

    Anytime people feel like playing a game they can meet at these special game places and find others to join. The playing groups will form spontaneously and anyone can join for some time and leave whenever he or she likes. So if you want to learn how to play local games like Ludo or Oware and meet others you are welcome to participate. Tuesdays are the best days to check it out is since the fishermen traditionally don't work that day and use it for socializing instead.
    Find the place by asking the locals in the towns.

  • Cinemas

    by SanBa Updated Feb 1, 2011

    It's almost impossible to miss the cinemas in town because big speakers entertain the people outside on the streets. For soccer or Ghanaian and other African films just check the signboards in front announcing the schedule. There are cinemas in Big Ada and Ada Foah.

  • Local Keep Fit Groups

    by SanBa Updated Feb 1, 2011

    You think drumming and running doesn't go together? If you want prove of the contrary, get up early on a Sunday and join the locals at the "Keep Fit". At around 5 to 5.30 a.m. the communal jogging, drumming and singing starts and mostly leads to a soccer field where those who are good with the ball continue playing. It ends with some breakfast that the sporting community takes together before everyone gets ready for church.
    If you want to join, just ask anyone around town or get in touch with the Tourist Information Center.
