i am considering the trip by foot? thank you.
chelsea, what you say? i can't walk to abuja from lagos oooo? i think i can do it. i am very fit and strong like a bull. walk fast too. what's this about suicide? is it not safe? i will stay in guesthouses at night or sleep in the bush, i will wear mask to protect from pollution and bugs, and i will probably carry about 50,000 naira for bottled water but i will have it hidden in me clothes and buy bottled water in the villages and cities like Ibadan and Ogbomoso (I will avoid Oshogbo). When I cross the Niger River I will pay a man to ferry me. Then I will need to spend 3-4 days in the bush before I arrive at my final destination of Abuja. I will use me gun if animals attack in the bush north of the Niger River and share some beads or other knick nacks from Lagos with the villagers north of the Niger.
also, after some rest, I may walk to Jos from Abuja. and yes, I have the N$ to take a private car but walking is much better for mind and spirit and getting to know the Nigerian folks in small villages. Wish me luck oooo!!! also, i will eat wild pineapple and other fruits along my trip.
