Lagos Diaries – Episode 4

This is me after a long day of driving around the Island trying to get my internet service topped up after my 10GB of initial data ran out. Thank God there is Google maps here, but it’s only accurate about 80% of the time. Because of this I spent hours trying to locate a Smile location where I could pay for my internet service (I didn’t have a debit card yet) between work conference calls and emails and feeding my daughter and dropping and picking her up from camp.
