Oh such long journey through time and space, approx 23 hours before we landed in MM Airport, Lagos. My heart's family were jumping high as we entered the compound. Beautiful smiles and laughters' surrounded us as we embraced and exchanged shakes.

The third day, i went through a 10 hours' journey to the village at the east by bus. My family took me around village and introduced me to my hearts beloved relatives.
I went to imafor market, church and football field to name a few in the village.

Fantastic meals were prepared i.e. african salad(abacha), fufu, egusi soup, banga soup, ikwobi, catfish pepper soup to name a few, and i enjoyed the village akara balls, mai mai, palmy, beans and plantain.
I was sad to leave the sweet people after celebrating xmas and new year in village.

I visited places around Lagos city like ikoyi, VI, apapa, festac,ajegunle etc.
Mostly, am missing my family who were the sweetest people
in my fatherland.
