May 19, 2017 - An unexpected layover in Lagos!

The flight was pretty uneventful but we got into Amsterdam over two hours late – then we got tied up in getting off the plane. Then we couldn’t find the gate on the monitor, and when we did I took off and Kitty and Jan walked to follow up. I got to the gate just as they had detached the walkway so we missed the flight. Off to reschedule and the clerk was very nice and got us a flight to Lagos then Johannesburg. Sounded good so I called the tour agency and told them of our changed plans. We got on a KLM to Lagos and all seemed well – only a...

One word that would describe Lagos is just simply: Nutty! Crazy! Chaotic! I really wanted to come to Lagos...and now my mission is complete. I could not leave Nigeria before I went to Lagos.
