I'm really glad everyone's enjoyed my pictures of Lagos, and thanks for all the compliments on my photography, woot woot *sings* we're moving on up... lol.
Life in Nigeria's not bad at all, similar to life in ATL. No matter where you go you just have to make the best of it. I have a lot of fun in Lagos, everyone "seems" nice and everyone warns you about everyone else being fake. I haven't really talked about people here or dating etc, but Lagos is wild, i joke it's Babylon.
Christmas time feels like spring break, and well I called it spring break. Let me explain. Spring break is a week in the United States when students get a week around March (give or take a week). During this week a lot of college kids travel to fun destinations warm destinations like Miami (you can blog search my spring breaks *top right of blog there's a search bar*). It's college kids, alcohol, LOADS OF PEOPLE & LOTS OF PARTYING, crazy fun, you meet a lot of people from different places, everyone's on holiday and trying to have fun.
So Christmas time in Nigeria, people are off work for a week or two; schools out; imports come in ( a lot of kids school abroad, and a good percentage come home for christmas), lots of weddings happen, lots of events, lots of fun, lots of clubs, lots of parties, christmas flings, food, food, beach parties, it's Vegas here, and of course warm weather.
So after months of staying here i missed my friends that i made the 10 years I lived in Atl, and begged my cousin/ one of my bff's Nneka to come to Nigeria for christmas. Bear in mind Nneka's only been here once before. Eitherways she agreed (love you Nneka!!), bought a ticket, and came to Nigeria.
I'm a "village chick" lol, Easters, Christmas are normally spent in the village, never spent christmas in the city/ Lagos well except 6 christmas' in Atlanta. So it was our first time spending christmas in lagos which everyone should do once to three times, after that I hear it gets old, kinda like spring break in the same city.
Here's Nneka's trip to Lagos, Nigeria, so you can pretend that it's you visiting Lagos (in the past I showed you my friends trips to Dubai, so this shouldn't be a new concept seeing a post thru someone else's eyes that isn't me, and I think you'll enjoy it..)
All pics are owned by Nneka. (i put a blog stamp on em cuz last time someone stole my friends Dubai pics, and the blog post I wrote as pretended she, the thief was the person on the trip. Crazy things people do on the net smh)
A few selected vendors were showcasing their products at the Creative Focus 2 day event at Federal Palace. So we went to check out Sheizadiva, and other friends who were showcasing their product.

A bunch of friends invited us out to this pool party. you know when everyone invites you to a party but at the end your wondering who the heck owns this place? lol. Eitherways this house was crazy! Nice pool, huge space, nice cars, Jetty, ocean, basically the only thing missing was Rick Ross, a music video crew and a helipad. I kid you not.
