Tengzug also known as Tongo lies about 17km southeast from Bolgatanga.  The Talensi people are sedentary agriculturalists and speak their own dialect of the Fra Fra language which required Rashed to use a local translator for us to communicate.  Our village of Shiega is located in the area and is where our next clean water project will be and we will visit the village on our Ghana tour this December 2012.  This region has a chain of hills and balancing rock formations and is very dry but we did find these beautiful pink flowers standing out in an otherwise very brown landscape.

Fetish shrines are found in the village
