Working on a Saturday

It’s 11 am Saturday morning. We just got in the office after the roads re-opened.


The drivers slept in their cars overnight at the office. They live very far from the office (more than 2 hours away) and if they had gone home, they wouldn’t have been able to pick us up at half past ten from the hotel when the roads only opened at 10 am today. Today, the last Saturday of every month in Lagos, is Sanitization Saturday and all roads in Lagos are closed from 7 am to 10 am.


It’s off to the beach tomorrow. A colleague of mine tempted me to go to Bungalow, a restaurant and bar, to watch the Singapore F1. But who wants to watch F1 in that puny island!? It’s off to the beach for me. Apparently it’s a 3 hours ride to/fro the beach, with lots of impromptu road blocks asking for money. It should be an interesting ride.
