Security / safety

Though my company expects me to only travel in Nigeria acomanied by an approved driver and/or security person, what happened ?

Arrived at the airpost, first of all after picking up my luggage, I had to search my driver from the security company. He was sitting outside somewhere on a pickup of a person he knew. When I finally found him, he asked a boy standing around, to carry my luggage to his car , standing far away.

Next he tried making me changing money from the nearby guys.
Besides from beeing illegal, the offer was worth NOTHING, meaning the rate was worse than any bank rate.

Picture Postcards

Finding postcards in Lagos is not really easy. Fiunally my driver found a place with small shops - kind of a mall for local people, where a stationary shop offered postcards of Lagos and Nigeria.

Stamps equal com▀lictaed. The hotel employees first did not understnd the idea of stamnpos nor postcards. They would have given TAX stamos to me, until one of them finally understood my topic.

Finally we found out the location of the post office nearby the hotel.

Street sellers offer nearly everything.

I regularly bought banana at street sellers alongside the main roads.
