Please help me thank God for the safe arrival of my father, one brother, and I in Nigeria! We’ve been here for about six hours and wow it’s just as hot as my mom and sister (who arrived before us) have been saying! My 24-year-old brother hasn’t been here for 19 years(!) so I’m looking forward to seeing Nigeria through his eyes.
My sister will be getting married in a few weeks so now that we’re all together we can continue the hard work my mom, sis, in-laws, and our family members have been doing. I’m excited! After talking to my future brother-in-law on Skype over the past year, it was great to meet him face-to-face. I can’t wait to see him and my sister together (she’s in our hometown while he’s still in Lagos) but I like what I see so far!
I should be in bed so I’ll stop now but I do want to mention that this was the most hassle-free airport experience we’ve had: sure the air conditioning was spotty at best and there were people jumping the queue (something I absolutely hate!) BUT we didn’t have to pay any bribes and going through immigration was a breeze. Our amazing friends who pick us up in Lagos make the experience so lovely—in fact I’ve told them I can’t consider coming home without them (yes, I’m a total wimp).
Good night and hope to be able to update more than I usually do during this trip.
