Traffic in Lagos, Nigeria is at a record low. Less honking and easier commutes.
Home is bursting with noise. Children driving everyone including themselves crazy.
You call it summer. We call this the ugly side of the longest vacation in the school year.
In search of adventure, beauty, and fun (An attempt to tire the kids out), we visited the LCC- Lekki Conservation Center just before the Chevron Toll Gate.
Enjoy our day in pictures!
What a Peacock!
CHILD 1: Hey we are new here, can you show us around?
PEACOCK: Do I look like a tour guide to you? (Hisses and keeps strutting)
ALL CHILDREN: Na wa oh
NUMBER 1 FAN: By all means, this selfie must happen. (Click)
Lost in the Woods
CHILD TWO: Woah! There are so many tall trees
NUMBER ONE FAN: Check out the monkey kiddos
(A minute pause at a rest point, children sit)
NUMBER ONE FAN: (Screams) Snake!!!
(Children run, and are caught on camera in mid-action, NUMBER ONE FAN laughs then continues walking)
Rain boots Squad
(The daring tour guide distributes rain boots to all four)
CHILD THREE: Does this mean we are going to get wet? Yay!!!
(NUMBER ONE FAN is now afraid. Her snake scare may come true from these murky waters)
Did Someone Press Play?
CHILD ONE: Let’s do this obstacle
CHILD TWO: And the next
CHILD THREE: Look! There is a monkey bar
NUMBER ONE FAN: …Yes, and one last picture for evidence that you had fun this summer in Nigeria.
