Has anyone ever been? It look like i might have to go there for work shortly.
i've never been but i know the different areas can be rather different...
are the places i'll be visiting.
Christmas lights. I'm bringing Christmas to Africa in a way Geldof never could. They'll soon know it's Christmas time alright.
But I know a guy from Nigeria called Divine Steve.
Hope that helps.
It basically sounds like kidnapping central if you venture out of Lagos
I visited Plymouth recently for work. That was pretty crappy too.
but higher risk of picking up horiffic accent in Plymouth - definitely
Lagos is very nice as is Abuja if you get the chance to go there
So Abuja is out. I was really just enquiring about my survival chances. I'll be with some Nigerians, surely that should raise my survival hopes?
diplomacy is good as is keeping your wits about you but it's not the wild wild west and I've personally never had any trouble.
I'd take an all expenses trip to Beirut if it was offered to me. I've always got a severe case of "Anywhere But Here" syndrome.
I'm actually really looking forward to it.
sorry if my reply sounded a little snappy.
how long are you out there for?
Well the project is supposed to start on November 17th but it only will if the rainy season is over. It'll be for a week after that.
my mum went last year and she loved it but also hated it.
no street lamps, so it gets dark real quick :(
Oh dear! These Christmas lights won't power themselves.
Just so you know, I think that email is a scam
I'm going to attempt to brighten up their otherwise hard lives with a meaningless Christmas light display. Smoke and mirrors make the World a happier place.
