Lagos Diaries – On the Tradeoffs of Moving to Lagos

My friend asked me to speak on the tradeoffs of living in Lagos vs. the States. These are my initial thoughts, there will be more to say, I’m sure, as I spend more time acclimating to life here.

One thing I didn’t mention is that to live in what is the most “comfortable” and most “gentrified” part of Lagos, you really need to be making six figures in USD.
