An Anatomy of a Move Back Home

I moved back to Nigeria briefly after living in The Netherlands for almost ten years. What can I say? I tried to reacquaint myself with the sun and the heat, but the years had driven us so far apart, sweat trailed me like a shadow. I made many new friends and rekindled old friendships. I struggled to get a hang of how things worked or were supposed to work. Did I succeed? Read about my journey and about quirky things Nigerians do: returning homeNigeriaNaija

Between Us

When something happens, I can call and tell you, but I’d rather write and let you read it. I’ve written a few of those things that happen between us, those things that you get, because our lives are more alike than different. Come, discover our world with me: between us

Life and second chances… you’ve probably had a few, but I’m giving you one now – choose an option and get on with my blog already!

  1. More insights into immigration. I can only imagine all the challenges. When you live one place all your life you know a lot about people,
    even strangers from external cues. Being accepting and kind are one thing, letting someone become hopeful, when you know it isn’t going to work out, would be much worse than hurting their feelings to head that off. I have always been good friends with diverse people, but dating is a different matter. At least now, you’ve got your escape line. 🙂
