Two updates while away? Amazing!

I would have never guessed that less than two years after my last visit to Nigeria, I’d be sitting in my aunt’s parlour, watching Moonlight and typing out a quick blog entry before internet time runs out. Two years ago, I had resigned myself to not having access to the internet and I assumed it would be the same thing this time. I’m delighted that I’m wrong, though my access will probably only be weekly (which might be a good thing, given my obsession with the internet).

This trip has been pretty interesting so far…I’ve had quite a surprise related to this little matter that I’m still trying to process. Unfortunately some of the same family matters that were present two years ago remain around, and I’m starting to understand why my dad advises me every time we speak to him to just remain agreeable with what family members are saying, whether they are telling me how difficult life is in Nigeria or telling me how easy life is in Canada.

I was fortunate enough to meet Funke before leaving Lagos. She woke up early that Saturday morning and met us at the home of our host before we had to leave…she was part of our send off party. She has such a great personality, and I’m so glad I got to meet her in person.

I’ve spoken with Writefreak but haven’t met her yet, as plans to find our way to Abuja are still in the works. Why is it that none of the bloggers I know are based in Ondo state?

I’ve taken a lot of pictures that I can’t wait to add to blog entries…I hope you’ll enjoy reading them when I get back to Canada. Until then, bye for now!
