    When you go to see a doctor in Ghana with a fever, you will be tested for malaria. It's a very common illness.

    The women have a lot of traditional dresses; you can see them every day.

    They also wear a lot of tight clothes. No matter what their body shape, the women love their tight clothes.

    Showing a lot of skin is considered to be... well, attractive, even in their culture.

    The use of the right hand is encouraged. It can be considered impolite to do things with the left hand, such as shake hands, or giving/receiving something with the left hand (this is because the left hand is often used for "toilet affairs").
