I want desperately to complete my goal – to turn my back and walk away from a set of values I see as wrong and unhealthy. I thought coming to Ghana was the first step. Maybe it was. But now I’m in a country of wannabe materialists that are trying to construct what I’ve just left. My dream is to take to the hills and live in the mountains. My fear is that I would be bored stupid. Are our lives and identities forever determined by being in opposition? Is there any way out?
