Rockstar in Lagos
The country that wasn't meant to be
I don't go to each and every one of the places I visit for pleasure. I prefer to avoid some places and effectively, I manage to avoid many of those I don't want to go to, but not others. Had it been for me, I would have avoided Lagos, as I have been able to avoid other cities with a bad reputation.
My stay in Brazzaville would be the last before leaving for a long time, a world with a minimum level of comfort. That's why I had to reluctantly spend three necessary weeks in the capital as a base.
10 hours packed like a sardine in a mini-van, along a boring sealed road, was what it took to undo a 12-day bicycle ride through brutal roads.
