I am currently seated in a couch with legs on a stool, and my tummy is filled with spaghetti and beef😃. I just ended a road trip; if you would permit me to call it that. I came to Lagos for the Easter break and it took me about 7 hours before I finally got home.
This is not my first time going home in a public transport; but I don’t just know what prompted me to wear a white top. My best outfit is a shift dress but I decided to swap it for a fitted top and skirt; Which I thank God I did. Because you don’t need extra clothes that you’d have to be thinking about. Also my hair was pulled up,so I didn’t have to worry about it getting in my way when it got breezy during the trip.
I had my sunglasses which is also a necessity when traveling on the road.
I opted for sandals because it’s a comfortable foot wear for me just in case my leg swells.
My plan was to order for a ride online when I get to Lagos, but a friend suggested we take the bus instead. I take buses in Lagos but I wasn’t so comfortable because of the big bags we were carrying. I agreed to take the bus but I knew in my heart it was going to be hell. The woman on my left kept searching for things in her bag and writing in a book. The woman on my right had a child in her lap and was a fish seller. The smell was horrible, from the sweat to the smell of fish. The writing woman was trying to make a conversation with me about how it rained in some part and it didn’t in another part of Lagos. I wasn’t really concentrating on what she was saying because the little girl was now asleep and resting comfortably on me.
I most definitely won’t be wearing a white top next time I would be on the road for that long, black is not advisable because of the heat. You could wear green, grey or blue.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, because the experience was fun for me. Let me know what you think below.
