Nigeria – Day 3

Well, another day has passed. Very similar to yesterday. Started off with my "usual" fruit platter and toast.
(I’m slowly getting used to the taste of Butter, Margarine is still WAY better!!)
 
Our drive to the office today was very enlightening. We took a different route which short-cutted us past a market. Wow. I’m not exactly sure how to describe what I saw. Basically a kilometre or so and tiny shacks alongside the road, selling everything from fruit and veg to cellphones. It really was more dishevelled than any township I’ve seen at home. In the middle of this scene of lack, there were plenty happy people… from kids playing soccer in the tiniest of gaps, to people just chatting. Amazing.
 
We are very privileged.
 
Work today was a case of 2 steps forward, one step back. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Neither here nor there.
On the upside, I met another member of the team, OJohno…
 
…hah, lights just went out for a minute… feels like home 🙂
 
… anyway, this guy is a treat. Kind of like a Nigerian version of Colin Kirkby. He brought a whole lot of fun to an otherwise small, cramped, unfun environment. I think I might just make it through this week.
 
Nigerian shortbread isn’t too bad either.
 
3.5 sleeps to home.
 
Really need to take some more pics tomorrow.
