Show me the MONEY!

From the series: Show me the MONEY! During a roadtrip in Ghana and while wandering the streets I kept seeing these wooden shacks with small openings in the front, some with meshed bars, some not and with a sole person inside, I was like daaammnnn, the heat, oh the heat, how can anybody survive in those poorly ventilated vertical coffins in this heat. Ironic one would say that these sweaty kill-boxes are selling dreams to a nation, the dreams of winning big, the dreams of being rich, the dream of finally telling your boss to “F*CK OFF!”, OH THE IRONY! If you won the lotto, what are the first 3 items you are buying?
