Lagos has been loads of fun so far… From our delayed luggage, steaming heat and incredible traffic gridlock 😀 Ok! Jokes apart, I love Lagos. Its the city of my birth after all. Yes o! Eko o’ni baje. I’m only here for a few days-Easter break. By the way, Happy Easter to you and yours!
I was born here but we moved away years back so I’m not very familiar with the city. My sister hasn’t been a bad tour guide though. I’d like to share with you what I’ve been up to since our arrival. Do Lagosians realize how much fun Lagos is?! Its like boredom is a choice here. There’s something for everyone and I’ve been having my share of Lasgidi moments.
The Beach– When I think Lagos, I think beach! This is usually the first thing we do every time we visit. There’s quite a number of beaches here. I went to the one nearest to my hotel. The initial plan was to spend a few hours but having been in the north for so long, the beach held me captive. We ended up spending almost the entire day… horse riding, taking goofy photographs, being chased by the waves, the feeling of the beach sand under my feet, wind in my hair…weave *wink*, roasted fish! I enjoyed myself thoroughly! Relaxed at the pool at the hotel and stared at my view of the sea till I was sleepy.
The palms– Ok I know you probably have a Shoprite where you live but trust me, everything in Lagos is different. Window shopping at the mall is an activity in itself, while you’re at it pick up one or two items…Just tell them I sent you
Nike Art Gallery– One word- Inspiration! I had the privilege of meeting Chief Nike Davies-Okundaye the owner of Nike Art Gallery and her husband. There’s something regal and warm about her and she exudes an air of Africanism. I was told by the curator that the gallery currently stocks over 9,000 artworks.
Get Arena– The plan was to go go-kart racing but when I got there it felt like it was kids day with an endless queue of kids. I suddenly became age conscious…#Agbayathings. I ended up being entertained by the youngsters. So, go-kart racing has been added to my carry-over list of things to do.
By the way, here’s the view from my hotel room, see why I LOVE LAGOS ??
