This immigrant

I must confess something. I am currently an illegal immigrant. As of Monday my residence permit expired. I have known of this for, oh well, a year, but couldn’t be bothered to go through the tedious procedure of visiting Ghana Immigration Service. Virgo threatens to report me to the authorities and have me deported.

I, being an optimist, choose to see the positive side of that: would I really say no to a free trip to Sweden in July? Think not. Mm, the money I’d save on my ticket could go to city hopping across Europe – London, Paris, Brussels to see J and Maastricht to visit N, back to Gothenburg for a one day trip to Copenhagen, a visit to K in Getinge and maybe a weekend in Stockholm for a change. Then, when I feel like coming back to Ghana, I could marry Virgo for my residency, or become a passport wife to any Ghanaian who’d want to marry an EU-passport holder.

Hm…maybe I’ll just turn myself in…

With the geniuses at the Ghana Immigration Service, your name should be enough to keep you here indefinitely, no?

Yes, let's hope so. I guess that's why I'm being so relaxed about the whole thing.
