The only thing I've never had he guts to try is Isii ewu. Lol@ the dude peeing on the street. Some things never change. Was that monkey really dead? Hmm that pink hair is quite a serious marra.

I love all the pictures
I always wanted to go to Nigeria
all that culture

making me so hungry
Love the pictures of all the locals
so jealous of your trip!!

Original Mgbeke said...

Dear Overwhelmed,
Do you think that this thing you are doing is fair? Do you think that is it a good thing to torture us with lovely pics of delicious looking food at 11:28 am(Eastern Time). It is not fair o. What goes around, comes around.

Signed
Mgbeke

Kafo said...

so where is the picture of the BEST suya you had


lol

doll said...

Sounds like you had fun!

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

about the maxi dress Old Navy has a bazillion in all colors, there not the best quality but they will do. Where else? Gap has some cute ones and so does le chateau.
Old navy is the best bet for a nice cheap one, in my opinion.
