How Now, Everyone

Hi there, and welcome back to ririaroundtheworld. After nearly a year of travel just back and forth to London, I'm back to somewhere interesting!

I'm in Nigeria for a week, working on a proposal - so far, it's a bit odd. Abuja is a planned city, and the seat of government, so it doesn't feel all that alive. All the streets are wide and often tree-lined, and there is a lot of new construction. It actually feels a bit like southern Florida - as though it's been carefully plotted out - I wouldn't be shocked to see a golf course around a man-made lake in the next 5 years.

On the other hand, I'll be going to Lagos for the day on Thursday - a big, roiling, unplanned city. Stay tuned, and I'll keep you all updated....

Will you bring my dad back some Lagos? Big ones? So the Nieceness can play with them?
