Teeming with live and vitality, the city of Lagos is big and loud. Imagine the number of people in the markets, malls, schools, on the streets… that the city is still functional and intact? No doubt, the people are doing many things right (and avoiding a few others too). There are rules to Lagos living — unwritten yet golden, for the survivalist tourist and the long-time indigene. Yes, we know all the right places to be at and the proper fun things to do but what about what not to do?
Don’t be a wall flower
Don’t be totally cashless.
Don’t dance in the rain (on the streets).
Don’t rely on your generator alone.
Solar panels, inverters, get them all. If one fails, the other will take charge. The power outages are judge and jury. You cannot win.
Don’t play with children that aren’t yours.
Don’t assume every vehicle owner is sane.
Don’t overindulge in street photography.
Don’t forget to eat Suya.
This kebab style hard meaty delicious flatness will rile your taste buds up.
Feeling at home yet?
This is Lagos.
