Have you at least visited Ghana?
 
I wouldn't just up and move there for the heck of it. I spent several weeks traveling around Ghana and though I enjoyed the exposure to the people/culture ... geesh at about week two I was ready to leave. I am not putting down Ghana is case anyone is from there but nooo, I couldn't live there - and I think AAs really romantize life in Mother Africa. I have visited many countries and the life is hard all around.
 
Why?
 
- did I feel welcomed and warmed by there by the people ... not really, people are too busy struggling
- it is a very, very traditional culture .. everything is about family and honor - sorry but that would suffocate an individualist like myself. It really is 'frozen in time' in this manner. Like many African countries, they have traditions that have been passed down since .... forever.
- the poverty is massive,massive in West Africa - the only place worse is India
- the culture. As a 'Westerner' you will surely stick out like a sore thumb.
- you don't have and family/status there so as a man .. what family would want their daughter to marry you?
- yes, everyone wants to be your friend so that they can come home with you .. so sometimes it's hard to tell why this person or that person wants to get to know you because you feel like they want something.
- rice, beans, veggies and some meat with spices is the order of the day ... which gets old after a while
- they don't really have a 'Western' lifestyle  in terms of Grocery stores etc. They exists ... but are quite different in terms of the foods they stock
- for example .. there were hordes of men out by the creek everyday washing a ton of clothes in Accra - and the water was filthy
- but the worse is the poverty. Everyone walks around like it's nothing, I guess because they are used it but even if you have money you have to see how other people live ... which is very hard
- the areas I loved the best were out in the countryside like Kumasi where people basically lived on the land
- and how would you support yourself? I would think simular to moving to Europe, you must have your 'papers' in order to gain residency. That is a pain in any country.
 
Anyway, it was a great experience but as mentioned earlier, it is very hard for most Americans even live in Europe ... but to up sticks and move to Ghana ummm my hat's off to you as I know I could never adapt to the lifestyle.

Some of what Printer said is true and some of it is not the best description. If your a ride or die type of guy that can hustle and nothing irritates you then you'll be sure to survive. Its really not all that bad but for the simple fact that your just going there with no business plan, no family, no wealth in government.... you might as well stay here and eat your burgers and fries.

IA...Some things are accurate...but some things are wayyy off...especially in terms of the ppl...but I wont get into all that. But if you have no business there, why are you going?  And you can forget that credit sh*tLOL...

I don't eat burger and fries though. I'll just move back to Japan, seems reasonable if  I can't really fit in the motherland.

I just simply want to live in all black nation and see how that is.

I have a Naija friend the married a Japanese woman and packed up and left. He got alot of slack when he 1st got there because I think its Japanese culture to move in with the family and as a African man he was like no no! He loves it but said its ridiculously expensive to live. They are all about entrepreneurial spirits and loan money to anyone and everyone at the banks.
