It’s one hour before the end of the day and I’m here to share this week’s things that I am thankful for.
I’m thankful for girlfriends that I can share my dating woes with. I always get a laugh from the process of sharing.
I’m thankful for phone calls from people who call just to say they miss me. I love being missed.
I’m thankful that my parents love spending time with each other after almost 34 years of marriage, and they remain a fabulous example of what marriage should be like.
I’m thankful that my oga is kind and supportive. She is such an empathizer.
I am thankful for the long weekend, one that is so important for Christians. As we enjoy sleeping in and taking it easy, may we also think of what Good Friday and Easter Sunday mean to us. I’m thankful for LIFE!
And finally, I’m thankful for all the comments that were shared on the last entry about flying within Nigeria. The information will help me and so many others. With this talk of traveling to Nigeria you’d think I’m going there any minute. I don’t know if I’m even going this year but I’m a believer in getting as much information as possible.
Since you guys were so awesome, I want to talk briefly about hotels.
We don’t have any family in Lagos, but we have some lovely friends who allow us to stay with them before we head to our home state, and then again on our way back to Canada. They are very kind and accommodating, and staying with them certainly helps us keep money in our pockets, but I thought it might be nice to stay in a hotel once or twice. We may still stay with the friends when we land in Nigeria but perhaps on the way back we can try the hotel thing.
Do any of you have advice regarding hotels in Lagos? Which hotels would you recommend and which would you avoid? Have you had any good/bad experiences with certain lodgings? Do you feel safe locking your luggage in your room and roaming the city?
