SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF SUMMER: LCC EDITION

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)

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)

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.
