Life in Nigeria is like a wave; it can get you high or it can really bum you out. Smiles and thumbs up are trendy in Lagos. Unfortunately, so are loud horns. Culture and folklore are very rich, and a diverse presence of tribes and traditions introduce new colors to our black and white vision. Local music can also tell you what they are thinking about: money. Mercedes’, BMWs, Jaguars, Maseratis… you name it, they are here. Ironically enough, right next to those cars are people sleeping on the street and begging for money. Art and fashion are exactly like their food: colorful, spicy, tough to digest, and crazy tasty. My favorite is suya, which is a mental spicy piece of chicken or meat cooked on the grill.
