The hidden Part of Africa: I Live in The Africa they Don’t Show on TV

The differences between living in Africa VS living in America is I feel like I can afford to live  in America. With that being said Africa is a really big continent and I am a girl from America living in West Africa for time to time.

This has been the most joyous time in my life living in Lagos, Nigeria the mecca of Africa. I really just love being in the estates cooking with my bae and taking road trips around Nigeria.  I live just like I would in America the only differences it they don’t have a McDonald’s.

Lagos has a country town charm with a fast pace environment. It so interesting to meet so many people from different parts of the world Lagos is an international hub. The first thing I notice about Africa is if you are not a black person then you stick out like a sore thumb. So from being in America you know a  very diverse place then going to Africa it’s a real culture shock. I like how I look like everyone else so I fit in well with the people.  People also think I am from the Iboo Tribe.

I also notice it was also a lot of Asian’s in Africa and they just be walking around like the regulars. When Bae meaning Tobi my future husband and I went grocery shopping we saw a few Asians shopping. That is about as diverse as at it got next to seeing the interracial couples with were different skin colors.

The fashion is very fantastic people dress in native clothing and some dress liked they step off of a fashion billboard. I am so intrigue by the styles and how the ladies tie their glee, the make-up and how they created glamours dresses with their materials.

Lastly the culture is very different from how I was bought up in America. I love how the Nigerians I am with are very focused on family, love, and respect.
