In Nigeria...

Im at a cybercafe sitting right beside a criminal!!! He's proposing to a (white?) woman.. something about he loves her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.. I'm laughing so hard my sides are hurting(whats even worse is his diction.. its absolutely horrendous!!!)

I dont have enough time to tell the fun and funny things I've seen in the few days I've been here... I'll try to come on periodically cos the 'Nigerian Experience' is one i think needs to be shared with the world...

1 guys slipped me his number on the flight to Nigeria, one slipped me his number at the baggage claim, one slipped me his number the day after at a computer store.. basically every day that i've been out... someones given me their number... or tried to get mine
(omo i too hot.. lol)
but me no interest ( for some reason Jill Scott's "Better at home" comes to mind...)

I love it though.. so far i've eaten Suya, roadside yam(the best!!!), amala, vegetable soup, okro soup, sardines(hehe...), plantain chips, some terrible cookie(nigerias version of shortcake?)

I drank something called gordon spark... some dry gin mix.. it tastes funny...
I havent eaten rice, pizza or pasta.. (a True Nigerian Experience if there every was one... I LOVE IT!!! )

I love NIGERIAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(But I'm gonna have to find a way to go out without my mom.. I havent gotten to chill with any friends yet... I still have about 2 weeks though)

Mr Mayo said...

Suya! Now my mouth is watering....
And you're getting numbers everyday - it's all part of being a fine girl and I'm sure you're definitely looking like a "yankee chic" or basically someone who just came in from outside the country. That even makes it more alluring.

Enjoy your vacation.

LOL! I'm sure you do..we all do. If you are in Lagos try to hang out with your friends more. They will take you out at night and its a whole new experience. Only in Lagos will you wave at a policeman with half a bottle of brandy whilst driving and all he cares about is what you have for him for the weekend. You'll never want to leave. Guaranteed. Stay safe.
