This week has been a whirlwind of activities, running errands and just trying to put things in place. I’ve been driving SO much this past holiday. While I’ve gotten my license a while back (ie last summer), I still have a lot of practice and improvements to my skills but practise makes perfect.Driving here in Lagos is absolutely crazy and like people say, if you can drive in Lagos roads, you can drive anywhere in the world. It’s literally chaos on the roads. A car brushed mine while I was out on an errand and even though the guy was at fault he was still shouting and causing a scene. At that time, I wasn’t sure who was right or wrong so I apologized. I didn’t have my license on me (kids don’t try this at home) and my grand mum was at the back; didn’t want her stressing unnecessarily and I certainly didn’t want the police asking me for my papers, hehe.  If there’s one thing I learnt, it is to be patient. I didn’t realize it despite people always telling me and I still have a hard time understanding but I kinda do agree that I need to chill 10 extra seconds. I’m usually so full of energy but at that moment I was so calm. Imagine if I started screaming at him in return. We’d still be there till now lol. Nigerians can sha blow things out of proportion. I can’t complain cause I’m GUILTY all the wayy!


What’s a sticky situation you’ve gotten out of? Any horrid driving experiences?
