Once you exit the shores of Ghana, note that your access to endless supply to Ghanaian delicacies is also cut off.

Even if you get access to Ghanaian food, it will come at great cost to your pocket and it may not be as tasty as what you are used to at home.

4. Physical contact with loved one

You will miss your friends and loved ones, especially if you lack the means to visit home regularly. In Ghana, it is easy to get attention from people. It is easy to make friends and establish a sense of belonging. But abroad, the policy is 'every man for himself, God for us all'. It can be very frustrating.

5. Trotro
