Two young ladies from the United Kingdom have got people talking online after they opened up on five things they perceived as differences between Ghana and their homeland.
The ladies who had been in the country for less than a year began their TikTok video by saying that one thing they had observed about Ghana was how the traffic laws were not observed on the roads.
The second observation they touched on centred on the craze for eggs by Ghanaians.
With this, they explained that Ghanaians prefer to eat most of their meals with eggs.

The third observation that they found interesting was seeing how non-relatives could discipline young kids if they did something wrong.
They also cited how teachers use canes in school as a way to discipline kids.
That particular attribute seemed to have impressed them as they admitted that was not the case back home in the UK.
The fourth thing the ladies looked at was how Ghanaians liked spices and hence, tended to make most of their meals very spicy.
The last observation that they found intriguing was how Ghanaians have so many languages.
Here, one of the ladies said that it was possible to drive every two hours and hear a group of people speak a different language in Ghana.
“I think I can say how are you in about seven different languages just in Ghana,” said one lady.
At the time of writing the report, the video had raked in over 18,000 likes and 900 comments.
Ghanaians react to the video
The observations by the ladies gathered a lot of reactions from netizens, many of whom had other ideas about the differences between Ghana and the UK.
It is the point 3 for me. Your neighbours can beat you and report you to your parents again for round 2
I think you guys should appreciate how intelligent we are... Most Ghanaians speak more than 2 languages. It's amazing really.
There are traffic laws they just don't follow them
The eggs are not that popular .. not all foods include eggs .. but your list is cool
