This supposed 3 hour journey, turned into a 12 hour drive on the Lagos Ibadan expressway due to a tanker crash and explosion.
|Here's a view of the traffic jam from a petrol station where we managed to have a sit down lunch, when the traffic started moving again, we made a mad dash for our car while carefully avoiding being run over!|
|OK, I was bored in 12 hours of traffic and these photos are the result|
Now for one of my favorite subjects... Food!
|Tiger Nuts... yummy, tastes kinda like coconut|
|What a joy to reconnect with new friends in Lagos! We first met in St Louis at Urbana15!|
|Globalization is real... Uber is in Nigeria! This was my ride to church in Lagos.|
I can't even come close to representing Nigeria in one blog post... or even 100 blog posts... but hopefully this conveys a taste of my recent stay there... and I will post more Nigeria tidbits in the future.
