Nigeria: Day Two – Driving

March 17, 2012


I’ve never played Grand Theft Auto…never even seen a demo of it. But I imagine that the way people drive in this country is comparable to someone driving a stolen car during a high speed police chase. Driving through the market just now, the driver knocked off another vehicle’s mirror and nobody even reacted. Also passed an upturned oil tanker and still, people have decided that the best thing to do is drive toward oncoming traffic.


What is the rush, people??? Chill out and enjoy the hazy, polluted skyline for a change.

It’s still hot as hell. Thankfully, though, it’s not as bad as it was yesterday. I’m soooo ready to leave Ibadan and go to Lagos. Despite the fact that I grew up here, everyone I know is in Lagos.

    I have a partner! lol.

    If you think driving is bad in Ib then you are not ready for Lagos yet. But Lagos is definitely more fun.
