... traffic-free Lagos. For the last week Lagos has been a ghost of its normal self. Of course, last Monday was Christmas Day and almost a week and a half's holiday followed. Tuesday (Dec 26) was Boxing Day. This Monday was New Year's Day, followed by two days of public holiday in celebration of the end of Hajj. Many people have travelled back to their home towns for the holidays. The true Lagosians and the for-all-intents-and-purposes-Lagosians have remained and many I'm sure are collapsed on their living room sofas and floors taking in as much rest as possible before the madness of work and normal Lagos traffic resumes.
I am so not looking forward to this. I have enjoyed flying down the roads, unhampered by other cars and the interminable Lagos go-slow. At least, it's good to know that I can look forward to another week and a half of sane driving in about a year's time.
