Lagos - Friday 15th April 2011

I wake up on Friday morning feeling vibrant and rearing to go. I need to see my mum today as she's in town in transit; on her way for a well deserved holiday.

Quick shower (no make up), phone calls and emails done, checked a few things off my TO DO list, and its looking good! I get into the car, turn on the A/C (which I had just spent N25,000 on 2 days before) its cooling well enough as the temperature outside is around 40 degrees centigrade

 So far so good, I set off. I pick my brother up on my way to my mum's. We drive for about 10 mins into a 1hour journey and bam! it all begins. Traffic begins to slow and eventually stops! As if thats not bad enough, in the near 40 degree heatwave, I notice that the car suddenly feels hotter ( no way! this CANNOT be happening) my brother is fast asleep in the passenger seat, blissfully oblivious of what's going on. I'm hoping against hope that its just the heat and that it would get better as soon as the traffic eases but alas that was not to be. So I continue to crawl at snail's speed
