Take a good look at this picture and it is worth more than a MILLION words!!! After a week in the great State of Lagos....I can honestly say that I have seen everything....commerce at its' best, but this picture of "OUR AUNTIES" speaks to the STRENGTH of the Nigerian people....there is a grand hustle and bustle, but in this organized chaos, there are still rules and respect...I call this picture....."STRENGTH"....Nigerian people are a strong people and there is pretty much nothing that they cannot do....you must come and see what I am talking about...words will not serve the heartbeat of this state...Summertimes in this great country are a pretty good option!!!
It's has been four days in the Great country of Lagos State, Nigeria....and all I can say is WOW!!!! If you have never been to Africa....Nigeria is the place that you NEED to go. The world is such a huge place and all of the continents are vastly different. To know that my anscetors are from this continent....is just mind boggling and bone chilling...I could be teaching one of my cousins or family members...and that in itself is PRICELESS!!!!! Words do not do justice to how amazing this place is!!!!! Please goto my Facebook and see the pics.
Sitting on the plane for 12 hours wondering if you are actually related to any of the Beautiful Nigerian people was mind boggling....We made it safely and it is definitely going to be a trip to remember for a lifetime....I am going to bring my family back HOME!!!! Being in America you can only connect to the pictures and what television allows us to see...but one must come the place where the WORLD'S civilization began!!! I am looking forward to a great trip....STAY TUNED!!!
Never in a million years....but it's actually is happening...I'm getting a chance to go to the Mother Land!!!! Nigeria here I come!!! Education is a thirst for knowledge...and I get a chance to teach on an International stage!!!! Excited!!! Follow along as I do my best to chronicle this AWESOME journey!!! Through photos!!!
