The Amateur Traveler talks to David from London about his home country of Nigeria.
David recommends, against the advice of others, that people who visit Nigeria visit the largest city which is Lagos. Lagos is the second-most populous city in Africa after Cairo.
David says “it’s chaotic, it’s crazy, it’s exuberant, it’s everything turned up to eleven, it’s the maddest place I’ve been. That is why you should go there. You’re not going to get a relaxing holiday going to Lagos. But if you want to see human life at the extreme, and I don’t mean extreme in a bad way, but just millions of people in a small place, everyone full of life, everyone exuberant, everyone seemingly happy, Lagos is the place to go”.
