Todays my first time at a cafe since... I'll call all the people I'm supposed to.. just got a number 2 days ago(long story). Having a blast... I have a few mosquito bites to show for it
I've eaten a few other Nigerian dishes: akara, akamu(pap), abacha/ ugba, breadfruit(ukwa), egusi soup, snails....
(Theres more to come)
A king in rivers state sent one of his bodyguards to get my number at the airport... crazy stuff(The bodyguards really couldn't believe that anyone could say no to 'his excellency)
Im still yet to go clubbing... probably will on the 30th.. i went to a masquerade festival... even the masquerades were shocked a female wanted to take pictures with them... most others run when they come
They're so ugly they've become beautiful... Lawd
I went to the stream... lol(as a true village woman)
A lot of village girls are scary looking with their overdrawn eyebrows and long boot wearings selves... I almost collapsed laughing cos the entire place was a fashion faux pas
(I decided that the next time I see someone so terribly unfashionable... that I'd actually ask to take a picture of or with them... )
should be fun
I DRANK STAR!!! hehe.. 2 bottles.. im a true alky...
and i went on a midnight drinking spree with some friends and family members ... heard so many igbo folk tales and drinking songs... i have never laughed so much in my life.
I have taken so many pictures... even of goats and chickens... I feel as though I dont even have enough time to go the places I want to and see everything.
I have a little more than a week
In general, Nigerians are mostly nice...
I have no time... too many stories to tell and I've fallen in love with a song 'timaya'... its the new yahoozee'
I have a question though: 'Is almost every Nigerian at an internet cafe involved in fraud?'
Im in a cafe with about 50 computers for public use... and every single one of them that I've passed is a yahoo account writing to a mugu...
As Charlie Murphy would say... 'We gots to do better!!!'
... and yeah I have a tan(and mosquito bite on my forehead of all places)
