My Trip to Nigeria: Sights & Sounds

Hi Everyone!

Like I promised, here are some pictures from Nigeria. You may ask, "what did you do with yourself for a full month in Nigeria?" Short story is this- I reconnected with old friends, I met new ones, I celebrated my birthday (the first I've spent in Nigeria since my sweet 16), I spent time with my best friend, I slept, I ate, I drove (scary!), I danced, I learned new things, enjoyed old favorite foods, sampled new ones, I watched movies, I reflected, my sister Ogo had her traditional marriage ceremony, I traveled and most importantly, I spent quality time with my was the first time in 3 years the whole clan was together. I miss it. My body is back from Nigeria but I need to bring my mind back. *covers face*.

I took 750 pictures! (don't judge). I selected a few to post on here; a little bit from every thing I did. I hope it tells the vividly true story of a memorable vacation that needs an encore! Enjoy!
