Dome is a suburb of Accra. From the airport it is 9.2km , 5.7 miles to the main Dome Road and approximately 9 miles from Central Accra. Omg! What are you doing here?! This area is not like Airport residential , Labone, Cantoment or East Legon. It is Dome. Nope. Not pronounced like its spelt . Domi - or Dor me. Say Dome and the taxi driver will think you are in the wrong city. Dome typical residents. Affluent . Middle class and poor. Just like the rest of Accra , it's real. You will wake up to the sound of a cockerel announcing it is morning albeit no sight of a farm anywhere close by. You will see goats , birds will chirp at the window and demand you wake up and greet them. You will hear children singing on their way to school, you will hear the church and your sense of smell will twitch to the unfamiliar . A minute walk from the house you can catch a taxi or bus (known as tro tro) and discover other parts of Accra.
