Morning drive

Dont you hate mondays? Took this while driving (not a good idea) at about 6.30am. The driver in the

car next to me did not look pleased at all. Extremely frustrating to drive in Lagos. Impatient drivers,

okada (commercial motorcyclists) mania, bad roads, lack of lane dividers and street lights...

There's still no place like naija

They broke through the walls.

This does capture Lagos... although you're lucky, you don't seem to be stuck in too much traffic...guess it was an early morning start!
debola: Lagos City! Yes it was an early start...rather get to work early than get into that traffic

Thanks for the comments

Talking of getting through a wall.. I heard of bank robbers in Benin who brought their own generator to power their drills....the definitive "na condition make crayfish bend"
debola: lol...really shouldn't be laughing. happened in Lagos as well.

Barbara you forgot to say that they spent over 4 hours there with no disturbance. Nice pic nubi
debola: 4 hrs really? thats crazy!

thanks E
Trust me, You havnt seen the worst till you come to srilanka...horrible horrile driving here....people drive like absolute morons..Not so fond of the pic tho..
debola: I'm sure the drivers in Srilanka went to driving school. 90% of drivers/motorcyclists in Nigeria did not.

Thanks for stopping by

Well I live close to New Orleans, Louisiana and since Katrina (hurricane) destroyed much of it, we are back to back in traffic here...renters can't find a place to live, crime has doubled and speaking of morons....we have doubled that too!

Intersting shot!
debola: thanks Judy
