Once Upon a Sunny Christmas

It’s not difficult to get me in a good mood. My friends often tell me that I’m too easily pleased and excited more often than necessary. Given the aforementioned facts, you can only imagine the excitement that raged through me on Saturday, November 30 when my friends from Uni, Sarah and Mayuri arrived in Lagos, Nigeria with the intention of spending an entire week as far away from home as their minds only ever dared to travel.

You’d imagine that the cheerful warmth, sticky humidity and bright sunshine of the Nigerian Christmas differs significantly from the bitingly cold and pristine white of the British Christmas. So it was no surprise that a spell of confusion accompanied by a smile with disbelief covered Sarah and Mayuri’s faces every now and then. 

We spent endless hours stuck in traffic, several instances encapsulated in awe and countless moments drunk with laughter. Below are pictures once upon our Sunny Christmas….
