It's a pity we had to leave so quickly so the only highlights were the fishing villages and the traffic going through Cotonou!
It's the most insane experience, survival is key and work as a group...
We crossed into nigeria at 2pm, this was the the firts of the dreaded ones, while tedious with police, then passport control then customs, it was actually very friendly!
The people have been incredible too, everywhere we stope we draw crowd, they want photos and to have a "discussion"...they love a discussion!
Lagos is immense and wild and dirty and jammed with traffic and dirty, oh and it's noisy and dirty! Weirdly still very friendly. We couldn't face the horror of finding a hotel so we headed to Victoria island to the posh bit. Adrian's dad has a friend in protea hotel so he called and got us deal. £90 pp but we would have our own rooms! I haven't had my own room on 7 weeks!
On the way in we're flagged down by a bad boy Nigerian biker, kitted out on his BMW 1100 with a air horn siren
Had a hot shower, a few beers on the beach, watched a movie and ate an actual chocolate that hadn't melted!
Full breakfast in the morning too!!!
